Comprehensive Yeast Genome Database

The MIPS Comprehensive Yeast Genome Database (CYGD) aims to present information on the molecular structure and functional network of the entirely sequenced, well-studied model eukaryote, the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In addition the data of various projects on related yeasts are used for comparative analysis.

News and courses

Magnaporthe grisea genome in PEDANT database  10.06.2003
The Whitehead Institute proteome set of Magnaporthe grisea, the filamentous growing rice blast fungus, was analysed by the PEDANT system. Please note the Whitehead Institute Disclaimer.
Hemiascomycetous Yeast Spliceosomal Introns 20.03.2003
Comprehensive resource on introns in hemiascomycetous yeasts with focus on spliceosomal introns as well as group I + II -, tRNA introns and their splicing mechanisms.
TRANSFAC - The Transcription Factor Database 25.09.2002
TRANSFAC is a database on eukaryotic cis-acting regulatory DNA elements and trans-acting factors Wingender et al. 2001. The here presented searchable part of TRANSFAC made accessible for the yeast community covers the yeast entries.
Candida albicans genome in PEDANT database  19.07.2002
The 17th fungal genome has been analysed by the PEDANT system and can be searched and compared to other species. The Candida albicans SC5314 genome sequence is based on the version from CandidaDB (Pasteur) after Assembly 6 release by the Stanford Genome Technology Center.
Protein-Protein-Interaction / Complex Viewer  04.04.2002
This new feature provides fast and convenient access to all annotated protein protein interactions (PPI, ~11.200) and protein complex data (~1050). The new genome wide protein complex analysis are also included:
Ho Y, et al. Systematic identification of protein complexes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae by mass spectrometry. Nature. 2002 Jan 10;415(6868):180-3.
Gavin AC, et al. Functional organization of the yeast proteome by systematic analysis of protein complexes. Nature. 2002 Jan 10;415(6868):141-7.
PEDANT analysis of Hemiascomycetous Yeasts 15.01.2002
The "Génolevures" random sequence data of 13 yeast species representative of the various branches of the hemiascomycetous class was subjected to a PEDANT analysis. Browse the results species specific or query the analysis in a S. cerevisiae comparative way.
FASTA yeast proteins against yeast / against a non redundant protein database 23.08.2001
The new updated FASTA database provides you with convenient alignments (fasta3 and smith-waterman) of yeast proteins against yeast itself as well as against an actually non redundant protein database. Users furthermore have the possibility to interactively align their protein of interest against all yeast proteins.
Search tables, PEDANT databases and EUROFAN functional data using BioRS 23.08.2001
The BioRS Integration and Retrieval System is used to make the EUROFAN functional data accessible in a fast and convenient way. By searching one 'EUROFAN_All_Nodes' table a list with all hits and direct links to the EUROFAN pages is generated. Additionally the S. cerevisiae and other ascomycetous PEDANT analysis (automatically derived properties of protein function and structure, DNA and protein viewer) is also searchable using this system. Further heterogeneous public and proprietary databases concerning metabolic pathways, expression analysis and cellular transport will be added soon.
Update/contribute CYGD 08.08.2001
Help us to make the database really comprehensive! For this purpose you are welcome to contribute any further expert information on existing features as well as on new found features or missing from CYGD. Please try to justify each statement by including the information source (best: PubMed uid). Any other comments/corrections are welcome! The link to the update/contribute form is placed on the bottom of each ORF/feature report page as well as under the information section.
Genome viewer 08.08.2001
The new genome viewer feature provides you with graphical clickable maps of the 16 chromosomes and the mitochondrial genome. Beside the ORFs all other genetic elements like Tys, tRNAs, centromeres, repeats, pseudogenes are presented above (Watson strand) or below (Crick strand) a black line. The lower colour represents the type of feature. ORFs are tagged by the upper colour according to our ORF classification. Clicking on any feature will bring you directly to the feature report page. Vice versa you will be linked to the cutaway of the corresponding chromosome by clicking on the coordinates of the ORF/feature report page.
