Yeast Images

S. cerevisiae images available from The Cell: An Image Library

Cell Image Library Reference

The Cell: An Image Library™ is a public repository of images and videos. These images have been reviewed and many have been annotated. You will find that The Cell provides a large collection of yeast images and videos.

The Cell is funded by NIGMS Grand Opportunities grant RC2GM092708 to the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB). We encourage you to submit images from your work to The Cell.


The following images were previously provided by the yeast community for distribution bu SGD. You are welcome to use these images, however please be respectful and cite the person(s) who provided the image as the source. If you have images you would be willing to make available for public use, please contribute them to The Cell Library mentioned above.
