Saccharomyces Genome Database provides mutant phenotype data

Nucleic Acids Res. 2010 Jan;38(Database issue):D433-6. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkp917. Epub 2009 Nov 11.


The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD; is a scientific database for the molecular biology and genetics of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is commonly known as baker's or budding yeast. The information in SGD includes functional annotations, mapping and sequence information, protein domains and structure, expression data, mutant phenotypes, physical and genetic interactions and the primary literature from which these data are derived. Here we describe how published phenotypes and genetic interaction data are annotated and displayed in SGD.
