Sequence Variant Tracks Added to JBrowse - June 12, 2019

We are excited to announce that 50 new “Variants” data tracks are now available for use in our genome browsing tool JBrowse. Utilizing whole-genome sequencing data published by Song et al. (2015), these data tracks visualize how the sequences of 25 S. cerevisiae strains differ from that of the reference genome strain, S288C. Two data […]

Proteome-wide abundance data - March 11, 2019

SGD has now incorporated proteome-wide protein abundance data obtained from a comprehensive meta-analysis by Ho et al., 2018. The authors normalized and combined 21 different S. cerevisiae protein abundance datasets—including data from both untreated cells and cells treated with various environmental stressors—to create a unified protein abundance dataset where all values are in the intuitive […]
