New and Improved Gene/Sequence Resources
July 12, 2018
Gene/Sequence Resources (GSR) is a great way to figure out which tools at SGD can help you analyze the yeast genome. Given a gene name, chromosomal region, or raw DNA/protein sequence, GSR retrieves a list of sequence analysis tools, options for accessing biological information, and table/map displays.
Pick up to 11 yeast strains in the new Gene/Sequence Resources
We’ve recently updated GSR to expand its search capabilities and provide more options for downloading, analyzing, and comparing sequences from different S. cerevisiae strains. New features in Gene/Sequence Resources include:
- Options to select up to 11 different yeast strains for gene searches and sequence downloading
- Ability to search for multiple genes at a time
- Sequence alignment/variation tools such as Variant Viewer
- Convenient, automatic loading of your sequence/gene of interest into other tools at SGD
Be sure to check out the new and improved Gene/Sequence Resources, accessible via the Sequence section in the top purple toolbar, and let us know if you have any feedback.
