Sign Up Now for the Next SGD Webinar: May 4th, 2016

If you’re not already using YeastMine to answer all your questions about S. cerevisiae genes and gene products…you should be! SGD’s YeastMine is a powerful search tool that can retrieve, compare, and analyze data on thousands of genes at a time, greatly reducing the time needed to answer real, practical research questions. Through YeastMine, questions such as “What proportion of plasma membrane proteins are essential?” or “How many different gene products physically interact with the mitochondrial ribosome?” can be answered within minutes.

Next week on May 4th, 2016 at 9:30 AM PDT, we will provide a brief webinar tutorial on how to run queries and create gene lists in SGD’s YeastMine. As a practical demonstration of YeastMine, we will also showcase a research scenario in which yeast-human homology data is used to predict potential chemotherapy targets for human cancers.
