  • Look for SGD at the Yeast Genetics Meeting in Seattle!

    07/23/2014

    SGD staff will be attending the GSA Yeast Genetics Meeting in Seattle, July 29 - August 2, 2014 en force! We will be hosting a Workshop, Posters, and an Exhibit Table. The Workshop, "Computational Tools at SGD," is on Thursday, July 31 at 1:30 PM in Kane Hall, Room 220. We will be discussing our powerful search tool, YeastMine, what's new in the realm of Strains and Sequences, and new displays in SGD.... Read...
  • Esa1p, the Balancing Artist

    07/15/2014

    In the art of rock balancing, the artist positions large rocks with exquisite precision. If he or she succeeds, the rocks counterbalance each other and stay in seemingly impossible positions to make a surprising and beautiful sculpture. But a little uneven pressure is enough to make the whole thing collapse. It turns out that the cellular acetylation state is just as precisely balanced. In a new GENETICS paper, Torres-Machorro and Pillus identify Esa1p, an acetyltransferase, as... Read...
  • Adding Introns to Synthetic Biology’s Toolbox

    07/03/2014

    As any good handyman knows, the more tools you have in your tool chest, the better the chance that you can find what you need to solve a problem.  The same goes for synthetic biologists.  The more parts they can mix and match, the more likely they are to engineer the exact level of gene expression they need. In the last few years synthetic biologists have amassed a wide variety of transcription and translation elements that... Read...
  • Polygamous DNA Replication

    06/26/2014

    Once someone is married, there are lots of things that keep them from starting a second marriage at the same time.  Laws, fear of losing the first spouse, social mores and so on all create a situation where the vast majority of people have only a single spouse at any one time.  As each of these inhibitions is lifted, people will be more or less inclined towards polygamy, depending on who they are and the culture...
