About SGD

The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) provides comprehensive integrated biological information for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae along with search and analysis tools to explore these data, enabling the discovery of functional relationships between sequence and gene products in fungi and higher organisms.

  • Support Model Organism Databases!

    06/22/2016

    Model Organisms such as yeast, worm, fly, fish, and mouse are key drivers of biological research, providing experimental systems that yield insights into human biology and health. Model Organism Databases (MODs) enable researchers all over the world to uncover basic, conserved biological mechanisms relevant to new medical therapies. These discoveries have been recognized by many Nobel Prizes over the last decades. NHGRI/NIH has recently advanced a plan in which the MODs will be integrated into a... Read...
  • Look Before You Leap...Into DNA Repair

    06/09/2016

    Sometimes in an emergency, it can be useful to take a pause before trying to fix a problem. If the ambulance is on the way you may not want to start removing someone’s appendix right then and there. Yes you may save them, but the ambulance and EMTs will do less damage to the patient once they get there. The same sort of logic applies to cells too. For example, a double stranded break is a...

  • New High-throughput GO Annotations Added to SGD

    06/06/2016

    We’ve added 1,400 high-throughput (HTP) cellular component GO annotations from a new paper published by Maya Schuldiner’s lab. In this paper, Yofe et al., 2016 devised and implemented a methodology, called SWAT (short for SWAp-Tag), creating a parental library containing 1,800 strains, all known or predicted to localize to the yeast endomembrane system. Once created, this novel acceptor library serves as a template that can be ’swapped’ into other libraries, thus facilitating the rapid interconversion... Read...
  • Sometimes You Need Half a Trillion

    06/01/2016

    In the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov, Hari Seldon invented a field of study called psychohistory which was able to “make general predictions” about human history. It only worked because the population of the Galactic Empire was in the quadrillions. You need huge numbers to get useful predictions. Sometimes real life biologists need lots of individuals to see what they are looking for too. In the case of a recent paper in PNAS by Lee and... Read...
