Disease Pages at SGD: Linking Yeast Genetics and Human Disease - December 22, 2018

To promote the use of yeast as a catalyst for biomedical research, SGD utilizes the Disease Ontology (DO) to describe human diseases that are associated with yeast homologs. Disease Ontology annotations to yeast genes are now available through SGD’s new Disease pages. Each page corresponds to a Disease Ontology term, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and […]

SK1 Sequence Updated in SGD - November 20, 2018

The alternative reference strain SK1 is a rapid and synchronously sporulating diploid constructed by Kane and Roth in the early 1970’s to study carbohydrate metabolism under sporulation conditions. Whereas the reference strain S288C is notorious for being poor at sporulation, SK1 undergoes sporulation readily, and as such has been widely used to study the genetics […]
