  • Sign Up Now for the Next SGD Webinar: August 3, 2016


    SGD's Variant Viewer is an easy-to-learn web application that allows visualization of differences in both gene and protein sequences. With Variant Viewer, you can compare the nucleotide and amino acid sequences of your favorite genes in twelve widely-used S. cerevisiae strains. Our upcoming webinar on August 3rd, 9:30 AM PDT will provide a quick 10 minute tutorial on how to use Variant Viewer. We will demonstrate how to compare nucleotide and amino acid sequences of...

  • Alliance of Genome Resources - Survey


    Please help the Alliance by completing the short survey at: http://bit.ly/SGD-AllianceSurvey Six of the founding members of the Alliance of Genome Resources (Saccharomyces Genome Database, WormBase, FlyBase, ZFIN, MGI, and the Gene Ontology Consortium) attended the GSA’s The Allied Genetics Conference in Orlando from July 13-17. It was a great opportunity for staff of each of these individual resources to talk about their new collaboration to integrate their content and software into a single resource... Read...
  • Keep Only What You Need


    In the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the evacuees from Edoras are warned to take only what they need. Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas do the same thing when they chase down the orcs who kidnapped Merry and Pippin. And Sam and Frodo get rid of all nonessentials so they can make it to Mount Doom. They all need to do this because if they are weighed down they won’t make it to their goal or maybe... Read...
  • Look for SGD at TAGC 2016!


    SGD staff will be attending The Allied Genetics Conference 2016 (TAGC) on July 13-17, 2016, in Orlando, Florida. We will be hosting a Workshop, Posters, and an Exhibit Booth. We'll be available during the entire conference to hear your comments or suggestions about SGD and answer your questions. Five different model organism databases - SGD, WormBase, FlyBase, MGI, and ZFIN - will also be doing open demonstrations and tutorials in the Demo Room (Palms Ballroom Canary 3-4).... Read...
