Detailed information on the above options

Yeast Genome Project
Holds the complete genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae Genome Database
The SGD project collects information for and maintains a database of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This database includes a variety of genomic and biological information.

The complete sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, strain S288C, is now public and can be retrieved from SGD (USA), MIPS (Germany), or EBI (England). Sequence searches using BLAST and FASTA are available from SGD. A summary of the yeast chromosomes is being assembled, including references, maps, and a DNA sequence retrieval form. SGD has begun the process of integrating the newly released sequence within its database and is waiting for the standard ORF designations from the authors.

Genome Navigator: Saccharomyces cerevisiae Genome Index
S.cerevisiae genome is available for viewing using a Java map display tool, DerBrowser. Among other features, it allows for quering external data sources: SacchDB, MIPS, YPD and GeneQuiz.

Yeast Protein Database (YPD)
YPD is a database of Gene names and properties of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae proteins of known sequence.

The Schizosaccharomyces pombe Genome Sequencing Project
The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is a unicellular ascomycete. It has a simple eukaryotic genome of approximately equivalent size to that of budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, at around 14 Mb. Unlike S. cerevisiae, the S. pombe genome is spread between only three chromosomes.

Yeast gene relationships
This is a database of yeast gene relationships based on data made available by Eisen et al. (PNAS Vol 95, p14863). This database catalogues the 2500 genes analyzed and gives the closest related genes based on a probabilistic analysis.

NIH Campus Yeast Interest Group

Yeast Transport Protein database (YTPdb)
The YTPdb server gives free access to the data of a whole genomic scale analysis of the membrane transport proteins of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae . The last release of YTPdb contains a total of 216 proteins (excluding mitochondrial carriers and multi subunit H+ ATPases). Roughly two thirds of these proteins were discovered by genome sequencing and are still of unknown physiological function.

Mycological Resources
The Mycology page gives details of many mycology sites, resources and information.

The Neurospora Genome Project
The Neurospora Genome Project (NGP) represents an effort to obtain partial or complete nucleotide sequences from a large number of cDNA clones derived from conidial, mycelial, and perithecial libraries of N. crassa.

MIPS Neurospora crassa database - (MNCDB)
The German sequencing project of Neurospora crassa chromosome II and V started in 1998. Chromosome II and Chromosome V are estimated to be 4.6 Mb and 9.2 Mb in length respectively. The total genome has a length of about 43 Mb which is more than 3 times larger than the first completely sequenced eukaryotic genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The entire genome of Neurospora crassa will be determined in a collaboration with laboratories in the USA.

The MIPS Neurospora crassa Genome Project page provides access to a BLAST sequence similarity search tool, where all available sequencing data can be searched. The user can submit a DNA or protein sequence to search against Neurospora crassa DNA or to the six-frame translation of it (Search NEUROSPORA GENOME PROJECT Sequences at the MNCDB - home Page).

A detailed manual annotation of entirely analysed clones is presented on our homepage and will be updated currently. (PEDANT - detailed annotation of Neurospora gene models)

The entire data set has been automatically analysed and annotated by the PEDANT software. The results of the anlaysis can be browsed on our home Page (PEDANT - automatic processing of Neurospora Sequences (entire dataset) at the MNCDB home page).

Candida albicans
Information on molecular biology and the genome of C. albicans.

Fungal Genome Resource
The Fungal Genome Resource has been established to promote research in the area of fungal genetics.
