  • NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) provides public assess to vast amounts of scientific information and tools, including scientific references, genomic and gene sequences, human genetic diseases, and nucleic acid and protein structures.
  • The Saccharomyces Genome Database is a comprehensive, public database that lists each yeast gene with extensive annotations to sequence data, protein data, cellular localization studies, known functions, published references, gene expression data (i.e. from DNA microarrays), and interactions with other genes.
  • The Saccharomyces Genome Deletion Project is a collaborative effort among many researchers studying yeast to create a library of yeast strains, each with a different gene deleted.
