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.

Video Tip of the Week: SGD's Variant Viewer: Variant viewers are very popular. As we get more and more sequence data, the challenge of looking across many samples only gets more and more important. So I always like to see how different groups are...
Video Tip of the Week: Complex Portal with Super Curators: From the same team that brings us the IntAct database for protein interaction data, the Complex Portal offers insights for additional levels of protein interactions that are organized around a biologic...
Video Tip of the Week: InterMine for complex queries: We've been fans of InterMine for a long time. We did a tip-of-the-week in a while ago that highlighted ways that this software can be used to mine from big data projects of many types. The generic fram...
Tip of the Week: Yeast genome? There is an app for that!: GBrowse navigation basics tutorial from yeastgenome on Vimeo. The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) has several short video tutorials that introduce basic navigation (shown above), expression data an...
Tip of the Week: InterMine for mining "big data": Integrating large data sets for queries within--and across--various collections is one of the arenas that has lately been pretty active in bioinformatics. As more and more "big data" projects yield hu...
