New & Noteworthy
December 5, 2012
Thank you for your patience during our move to the new data center last week.
This move is very significant for us, as we are now in a professionally managed computing facility with all the necessary backup cooling and power contingencies available. This move also allows us to continue expanding our services.
The computer room is critical for the stability of SGD and other resources. Our previous location was created when SGD was young, and did not accommodate the amount of growth we have enjoyed. We are very happy to have the opportunity to be located in this brand new facility designed for research computing.

We are in the process of migrating SGD servers to new faster hardware! You may have already noticed an increase in performance. There could be some teething issues in the next couple days – so please bear with us!

RNA expression data that are included in SGD’s SPELL expression analysis tool are now available for download in the expression directory. Datasets have been grouped by publication and are in PCL format.
LiftOver files that allow conversion of chromosomal coordinates between different S. cerevisiae genome versions are also now available for download via the genome_releases link in the sequence directory.

SGD has added more than just a new look, we’ve added some great new features!
View the short video “We’ve added more than just a new look…” on Vimeo to learn about our enhanced Search Box and our new navigational menu bar.

Links to YPL+ (the Yeast Protein LocalizationPlus Database) have been added to the “Protein Information” section of SGD Locus Summary pages. YPL+ is a recently upgraded version of the YPL image database, and has been expanded to include GFP-localization data for more than 3500 genes. Data in YPL+ are derived from a collection of GFP fusion constructs generated by C-terminal chromosomal tagging (Huh et al., 2003, Nature 425, 686-691) as well as a collection of proteins involved in lipid-metabolism, constructed by in vivo recombination (Natter et al., 2005, Mol. Cell. Proteomics 4(5), 662-672). Thanks to Sepp Kohlwein for help in setting up these links.
