Network inference reveals novel connections in pathways regulating growth and defense in the yeast salt response

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 5940180
PMID: 29738528
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1006088

[…] The raw data corresponding to TMT-labelled peptides were searched against Saccharomyces genome database (SGD) of yeast protein isoforms (downloaded 12.02.2014) and processed using the COMPASS software suite [], with FDR correction at the peptide and protein level (<1%). TMT […]


Nuclear fate of yeast snoRNA is determined by co transcriptional Rnt1 cleavage

[…] Protein sequences used for generation of a phylogenetic tree were derived from NCBI ( and the Saccharomyces Genome Database ( Mafft was used to generate a CLUSTAL format alignment of all sequences, using the L-INS-i method default settings ( […]


Large scale profiling of noncoding RNA function in yeast

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5864082
PMID: 29529031
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007253

[…] the open source version of Shiny-server. The underlying server-side data processing is written in R [], version 3.4.0. Lists and positions of chromosomal features in S. cerevisiae are taken from the Saccharomyces Genome Database ( The type of features included are: known opening reading frames, tRNA genes, snoRNA genes, centromeric and telomeric regions, autonomous replicatin […]


Chemical signaling and insect attraction is a conserved trait in yeasts

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5838033
PMID: 29531709
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3905

[…] ated with flowers but studies discriminating between plant‐ and microbe‐derived metabolites are rare (Lenaerts et al., ). The Pherobase was also consulted for behavioral activity of floral odors. The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) using WU‐BLAST2 was consulted for the reciprocal BLAST search. […]


Adaptability of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeasts to wine fermentation conditions relies on their strong ability to consume nitrogen
