The complete sequence of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain S288C has been determined in an international collaboration of more than 100 laboratories.
The sequence data can be copied from the following ftp sites:
America genome-ftp.stanford.edu (directory /yeast/sequence/genomic_sequence/) The contributing consortia are: complete chromosomes partial chromosomes EU (Goffeau) II, III, VII, X, XI IV, XII, XVI XIV,XV St. Louis (Johnston) VIII IV, XVI Sanger (Barrell) IX, XIII IV, XVI McGill (Bussey) I XVI Stanford (Davis) V IV Riken (Murakami) VI CHROMOSOME DNA Coordinator Length Release I H.

Length: 78,520 nt __________________________________________ Total: 12,136,020 nt 12,057,500 nt (without mitochondrial genome) The yeast genome contains several regions with extensive repeated sequences. These repeats have not been sequenced in their entirety but at least one mostly two copies have been included in the final sequences. Missing repeated sequences: ~ 100 copies of rDNA repeat(chrXII) each ~9,137 nt = 913,700 nt 2 copies of the ENA2 (chrIV) repeat ~3,885 nt = 7,770 nt ~ 10 copies of the CUP1 repeat (chrVIII) ~ 1,998 nt = 19,980 nt ~ 3-5 copies of Y' elements each ~6,700 nt (chrIV telR 2-3 copies; chrXII telR 1-2 copies) = 26,800 nt ~ 750 nt of telomeric sequence of chrVI = 750 nt ___________________________________________________________________ Total of missing repeated sequences: 969,000 nt The total genome of S.c. S288C therefore contains: 12,136,020 nt + 969,000 nt _______________ 13,105,020 nt NOTE: The strain S288C lacks some of the gene families found in brewery and other industrial strains such as the MEL, MAL and SUC gene families and may be others. Sequence data released before April 1996 are annotated and the systematic nomenclature has been assigned. Due to the priority of the rapid release of the data to the scientific community, the assignment of the systematic nomenclature for open reading frames has not yet been completed for all 16 chromosomes. In collaboration with the consortia involved in this project these nomenclature will subsequently be added to the information on the WWW pages (see below) and finally included in tables on the FTP sites. (Please do NOT start doing your own nomenclature to avoid unnecessary confusion!) Detailed information on open reading frames, genetic elements, and the graphical display by the GSG (Genome Sequence Graph) are available on the WWW: http://mips.gsf.de Reference information is linked to the S. cerevisiae page for each chromosome. Information on the web includes homology listings and graphical display of the chromosomes. A detailed classification of open reading frames is in progress. H.W. Mewes & K. Kleine Max-Planck-Inst. f.
