About SGD

The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) provides comprehensive integrated biological information for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae along with search and analysis tools to explore these data, enabling the discovery of functional relationships between sequence and gene products in fungi and higher organisms.

  • Taking the Pulse of a Yeast Cell

    10/30/2014

    Halloween is the time of year when we are all reminded of vampires. And if our favorite yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae isn't careful, it might be a vampire's next target. Vampires are drawn to living things with pulses so they can suck out their blood. And in a new study in Current Biology, Dalal and colleagues have found a pulse of sorts in yeast cells. Now of course the yeast aren't pumping blood. Instead, hordes of proteins are... Read...
  • If Yeast Can’t Stand the Heat, Our World May Be in Trouble

    10/23/2014

    In case there were still any doubters, the world is definitely heating up. April to September 2014 were the warmest these months have ever been since we started keeping records in 1880. And about 35,000 walruses were forced ashore this summer in Alaska because there wasn't enough room left for them on the sea ice where they normally hang out. Unfortunately, the trend looks to be more record breaking heat for as long as we can see... Read...
  • Help SGD by Taking a Brief Survey

    10/21/2014

    If you could wave a magic wand and change something about SGD, what would it be? We want to know! We need your feedback to make SGD even more useful to the biomedical research community. Which features are most important to you and how could they be improved? Which new data, tools, or resources will you need from SGD over the next few years as your research evolves? We would greatly appreciate your thoughts on how we... Read...
  • Runaway Polymerases Can Wreak Havoc in Cells

    10/16/2014

    A train without working brakes can cause a lot of destruction if it careens off the tracks. And it turns out that a runaway RNA polymerase II (pol II) can cause a lot of damage too.  But it doesn’t cause destruction, so much as disease. Unlike a train, which has its brakes built right in, pol II has to count on outside factors to stop it in its tracks. And one of these brakes in both... Read...
