Learn to use Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD), a collection of data and tools for genetic and proteomic analyses of the bakers' or budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. As the first eukaryotic genome to be fully sequenced, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has a unique history. Yeast is a widely used model organism for molecular biology, genetics and genomics analysis and this resource contains a tremendous amount of knowledge with extensive depth. Learn how to use this resource, so you too can effectively use the tools and mine the voluminous data available in this database.

You will learn:

  • to navigate the SGD site, locate Basic and Advanced Search options, and use the site map to access additional search tools
  • to perform the two Basic SGD Quick and Text Search types and understand the displays
  • to navigate the SGD Locus Page and access data from a variety of tools, tabs, and links
  • to investigate many related resources associated with SGD
