Saccharomyces Genome Database

Saccharomyces Genome Database

A database for the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a budding yeast. It is funded by the US National Institutes of Health and the National Human Genome Research Institute.

cluster: The Saccharomyces Genome Database is an online platform that can be used a resource by researchers studying and experimenting with saccharomyces cerevisiae. There is data that has been extracted from peer-reviewed scientific literature and references topics such as genes and phenotypes.

The Database

Researchers can gain access to the database using an internet browser with Javascript enabled. There is a search engine in which the user can enter information such as a portion of a sequence, gene name, function, or map position and be presented with literature and research related to that topic. The database gets DNA and protein sequence information from primary sources such as GenBank.

Users can find annotations on the database, which allow for them to understand connections between gene products. The database also has a sequence similarity search function so that researchers can find links between sequences. There is also a community portion of the database where users can find information on colleagues, meetings, and other historical data.
