New & Noteworthy
September 15, 2011
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 both its BLAST Search and Pattern Matching (PatMatch) tools to include genomic, coding, and protein sequences from 26 additional S. cerevisiae strains. Look for more updates and tools from SGD for analyses of the S. cerevisiae strain genomes in the coming months.
September 1, 2011
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.
August 22, 2011
SGD’s “Advanced Search” and “Batch Download” tools will be retired on August 31st. All of the functions of these tools, plus many more, can be accomplished by YeastMine, which offers flexible queries and fast retrieval of multiple datatypes from SGD for a custom list of genes or proteins.
Short video tutorials that walk you through some of the basic actions in YeastMine are also available.
