  • Another Small Victory for Lamarck

    07/29/2015

    Examples of various ways that the environment affects gene expression have become so commonplace that new examples don’t make much of a splash anymore. It is as if Lamarck and Darwin had never argued about how natural selection works. The main reason we aren't surprised anymore is that we have a pretty good handle on how most of these changes are happening. Something in our environment causes chemical groups to be added or removed from our... Read...
  • SGD Help Videos: Working with Lists in YeastMine

    07/28/2015

    Understanding lists and knowing how to work with them is crucial to getting the most out of YeastMine. This set of short videos explains everything you need to know. YeastMine allows you to save objects in lists. Typically, these objects are genes, but you can also make lists of other objects such as Gene Ontology terms or PubMed IDs. One way to create a list in YeastMine is to run a query and save the results... Read...
  • Two Tales of Two Tails

    07/22/2015

    Tails let animals sense and interact with their environment at a distance from their bodies. It turns out that some proteins use their “tails” in a similar way. Except they take it one step further. In addition to sensing the environment, they can also use their tails as sort of fishing poles to catch proteins they need to interact with. And they do this with great specificity…it is like having that perfect lure that always catches... Read...
  • SGD Help Video: Gene Name Reservation

    07/13/2015

    The eminent Drosophila geneticist Michael Ashburner famously said: "Biologists would rather share their toothbrush than share a gene name." It's true that assigning names to genes is often a sticky subject. In the Saccharomyces cerevisiae community we're very lucky to have well-defined guidelines for genetic nomenclature, an established system for reserving gene names, and criteria for making them "standard," or official, names. This system was agreed upon by yeast researchers nearly two decades ago and has served... Read...
