SGD is developing a library of short video tutorials designed to step you through using various SGD tools. Check out those currently available for YeastMine, GBrowse, and SPELL, located on our SGD Video Tutorials page. Preview the “YeastMine is Awesome” video below, describing just a few of the “awesome” things you can do in YeastMine!

SGD has upgraded Yeast Biochemical Pathways (YeastCyc) to Pathway Tools Version 15.0. This version gives the pathway database a new look and offers new features for querying and analyzing data. A pathway-specific toolbar, available on each pathway web page, provides easy navigation and new features, including options to highlight pathways and substrates on the cellular overview and to download a list of genes from a specific pathway. Pathway files (yeastcyc15_201109.tar.gz and biochemical_pathways.tab) can be downloaded from SGD’s downloads page.

SGD has updated its file Downloads Site. The new look includes complete genomic and protein sequence files for the current S288C reference sequence (Release 64) and all previous releases. Genomic sequence and annotation for numerous S. cerevisiae strains are also available for download. As always we make available many other published datasets and a large collection of information curated by SGD from the literature.
