The SGD is a comprehensive online resource dedicated to providing researchers with accurate and up-to-date information about the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This community-driven project focuses on manually curating and integrating results from both individual gene studies and large-scale genomic projects.

Through advanced text mining and data analysis techniques, the SGD team extracts and verifies key information about gene function, regulation, protein interactions, evolutionary relationships, and more. This vast knowledge base is then made accessible to researchers through user-friendly search tools and interactive displays, fostering new discoveries and advancements in the field of yeast biology.

Key Features:

  • Comprehensive data: Detailed information on genes, proteins, pathways, and more.
  • Manual curation: Highly accurate data verified by expert biocurators.
  • Open-source tools: Powerful search and analysis tools for efficient exploration.
  • Continuous improvement: Regular updates with new data and features.
  • Community resource: Supported by the scientific community worldwide.

Benefits for Researchers:

  • Accelerate research: Quickly access and analyze relevant data.
  • Gain deeper insights: Uncover new relationships and connections.
  • Make informed decisions: Base your research on reliable information.
  • Contribute to knowledge: Share your own findings with the community.


The SGD is supported by the US National Institutes of Health, National Human Genome Research Institute.
