Saccharomyces Genome Database: The Genomics Resource of Budding Yeast


Saccharomyces Genome Database: The Genomics Resource of Budding Yeast

J Michael Cherry et al. Nucleic Acids Res.


The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD, is the community resource for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The SGD project provides the highest-quality manually curated information from peer-reviewed literature. The experimental results reported in the literature are extracted and integrated within a well-developed database. These data are combined with quality high-throughput results and provided through Locus Summary pages, a powerful query engine and rich genome browser. The acquisition, integration and retrieval of these data allow SGD to facilitate experimental design and analysis by providing an encyclopedia of the yeast genome, its chromosomal features, their functions and interactions. Public access to these data is provided to researchers and educators via web pages designed for optimal ease of use.
