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.

  • New Protein Half-life Data in SGD and YeastMine


    Ever wonder how quickly your favorite protein turns over within the cell? SGD has just incorporated half-life data for 3700 yeast proteins from a paper by Christiano et al., 2014. In this study, Christiano and colleagues pulse labeled exponentially growing wild type yeast cells in synthetic medium with a heavy lysine isotope (pulse SILAC), and followed the decay of native untagged proteins using high-resolution mass spectrometry based proteomics. The data generated in this study can... Read...
  • More Than Just a Brick


    Cell phones have evolved in amazing ways. What started as a “dumbphone” that only let you make calls and, somewhat awkwardly, text, has now become a smartphone - a marvelous mini-computer. What this means is that even if a smartphone’s SIM card goes bad so that you can’t make a call or send a text, you still have something that can do a lot. In fact, since it can still connect to Wi-Fi, you can even... Read...
  • Sign Up Now for the Next SGD Webinar: September 7, 2016


    The SPELL expression analysis tool at SGD makes it easy to find expression datasets and coexpressed genes that are relevant to your genes of interest. Just plug in a set of genes and go! Once given a query, SGD's instance of SPELL locates informative expression datasets from over 270 published studies and identifies additional genes with similar expression profiles. Find out how to use SPELL in our upcoming webinar on September 7th, 9:30 AM PDT. This quick 10-minute... Read...
