SGD | Saccharomyces Genome Database


Compiles comprehensive integrated biological information about the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. SGD is a manually-curated database which aims to improve the discovery of functional relationships between sequence and gene products in fungi and higher organisms. The database records information about the yeast genome and its genes, proteins, and other encoded features. Moreover, it contains several bioinformatic tools to facilitate experimental design and analysis.
