The Saccharomyces Genome Database is in jeopardy (see this article: https://doi.org/10.1242/dev.200193). The time to speak up is now. The NIH survey takes only a couple minutes to complete and could preserve the funding for important resources like SGD: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5NGLNNJ. Please forward this request to your colleagues so we all can make our voices heard.Read More
The S. cerevisiae strain S288C reference genome annotation was updated in its first major update since 2014. The new genome annotation is release R64.3, which released on April 21, 2021. Note that the underlying sequence of 16 assembled nuclear chromosomes, plus the mitochondrial genome, remained unchanged in annotation release R64.3.1 (relative to genome sequence release R64.2.1). This annotation update […]Read More
