Explore SGD Allele Data Using New Allele Pages

October 29, 2020

We are pleased to announce that SGD’s brand new Allele Pages are now available on our website. To navigate to an allele page, use the search bar to find a specific allele or enter a gene name and select an allele from the autocomplete list. Additionally, these pages can be accessed by clicking on the allele name in a gene’s Phenotype Annotation table. These pages are still being updated with new information as it becomes available.

The type of information that you can find on each allele page includes:

  • Allele Overview: General information about the allele, such as its name, the affected gene, the type of allele (e.g. missense), and a description of sequence change and/or domain mutated.
  • Phenotype and Interaction Annotations: Phenotype and Genetic Interaction Annotation tables for the allele.
  • Shared Alleles: A network diagram depicting shared phenotypes and interactions with other alleles.

Start browsing the thousands of alleles we now have yourself, or check out our Allele Pages video for a more detailed walk-through of what you can expect to find on each allele page:

If you are interested in viewing all alleles for a specific gene or would like to view a comprehensive list of the alleles that SGD currently has curated, you can use this YeastMine template with your customized parameters.

If you have any questions or feedback about the new Allele pages and data, please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
