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.

  • Where's That Protein?

    07/01/2015

    You might be familiar with the Where’s Waldo book series, especially (but not necessarily) if you have kids. They challenge the reader to find Waldo within huge, intricately drawn groups of people. Even though Waldo has his distinctive characteristics—glasses and a striped shirt and hat—he can be very hard to find. Now imagine that the drawings shift under different conditions, so that Waldo could be in any of several places at different times. And imagine that... Read...
  • New SGD Help Video: Yeast-Human Functional Complementation Data

    06/30/2015

    Yeast and humans diverged about a billion years ago, but there’s still enough functional conservation between some pairs of yeast and human genes that they can be substituted for each other. How cool is that?! Which genes are they? What do they do? This two-minute video explains how to find, search, and download the yeast-human functional complementation data in SGD. You can find help with many other aspects of SGD in the tutorial videos on our YouTube... Read...
  • The Sounds of Silencing

    06/17/2015

    For centuries, we thought of the universe as an empty, eerily silent place. Turns out we were dead on when it came to the emptiness, not so much when it came to the silence. Once we invented devices that could detect electromagnetic radiation—starting with the Tesla coil receiver in the 1890s—we began to realize what a noisy place the universe really is. And now with modern radio telescopes becoming more and more sensitive, we know there... Read...
  • Yeast-Human Functional Complementation Data Now in SGD

    06/10/2015

    Yeast and humans diverged about a billion years ago. So if there's still enough functional conservation between a pair of similar yeast and human genes that they can be substituted for each other, we know they must be critically important for life. An added bonus is that if a human protein works in yeast, all of the awesome power of yeast genetics and molecular biology can be used to study it. To make it easier for... Read...
