  • Next SGD Webinar: June 1, 2016


    If you’re not already using JBrowse to view all your favorite S. cerevisiae genes…you should be! SGD's JBrowse is a quick and easy way to browse through the information-rich yeast genome. Using JBrowse, you can visualize spatial relationships between genes, locate SGD annotations throughout the yeast genome, and align chromosomal features to hundreds of experimental data sets. Our upcoming webinar on June 1st will provide a short 15-minute tutorial on the basics of JBrowse. We will... Read...
  • Control (Apple) F for Genetics


    A long time ago, through the mists of time, finding a phrase or a passage in a document was hard. If you didn’t have the foresight to highlight it, you were stuck. You could reread the whole document but that might take way too much time. Or you could narrow down where to look by remembering the chapter it was in and rereading just that. Nowadays of course, finding that phrase or passage is trivial in a... Read...
  • New SGD Help: Downloading and Uploading JBrowse Data Tracks


    SGD's new JBrowse genome browser allows quick and easy browsing of the information-rich yeast genome. Take a look at our newest video tutorial to learn how to download or upload JBrowse data tracks. Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. For more SGD Help Videos, visit our YouTube channel, and be sure to subscribe so you don't miss anything! ... Read...
  • Can’t Get There Like That


    As HBO’s Silicon Valley scathingly relates, the mapping app from Apple was truly terrible when it was first launched. There are all kinds of funny (scary?) stories in which people following the directions ended up in the wrong place. (Click here for a few more of the epic fails.) And sometimes it would show impossible ways to get from one location to the other. For example, to get to a certain place, my iPhone would recommend... Read...
