Fpt1p is a negative regulator of RNA Polymerase III embedded in the tDNA chromatin-proteome - November 27, 2023

Gene transcription is facilitated by RNA polymerase enzyme complexes that collaborate with transcription factors, repressors, chromatin remodelers, and other cellular factors. RNA Polymerase III (RNAPIII) mainly transcribes short DNA fragments called tDNAs, that code for transfer-RNAs (tRNAs). In repressive conditions, tDNA transcription is repressed by the well-characterized protein Maf1. A new study by Van Breugel et al., […]

How do your papers get into SGD? - October 03, 2023

Members of the yeast community come to SGD to find the latest peer-reviewed budding yeast-specific scientific literature. You could go to Google or PubMed and find huge piles of literature…but then you’d have to slog through the lists and pages to find exactly what you’re looking for. Instead, you skip all that and come straight […]

Allele SGDIDs added to YeastMine - September 28, 2023

YeastMine is SGD’s data warehouse, powered by InterMine. We have so many templates (i.e., pre-defined queries) that provide access to so many different kinds of data! A big area of focus for SGD and the yeast community is alleles. Alleles are different versions of genes that vary in DNA and sometimes protein sequence. Did you […]

Downloads files added to YeastMine - September 20, 2023

Back in the day, SGD maintained an FTP site to distribute data in various files. More recently, you have found these files in the SGD Downloads site. We have now moved these files to YeastMine: From the YeastMine homepage, click Templates at top left. In the Filter, select ‘Downloads’ to constrain the list of templates. […]

Chemical structures now on Chemical pages in SGD - September 14, 2023

SGD curators use the Chemical Entities of Biological Interest (ChEBI) Ontology, maintained by EMBL-EBI, to describe chemicals used in experiments curated from yeast publications and displayed on SGD webpages. You may have noticed that we have recently added chemical structures provided by ChEBI to the Chemical pages in SGD! Click the structure to zoom in, […]
