Dear Yeastnetters,

	A new database for the proteins of S. cerevisiae has been released 
from the QUEST Protein Database Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.  
This database, called YPD (Yeast Protein Database), can be downloaded from
ftp isis.cshl.org in directory pub/yeast/YPD.  The file YPD.doc provides
a more complete description of the database and its data fields.  The README
file describes the available file formats.

	The YPD database was built to assist us in our project to identify
and characterize the proteins of budding yeast on 2D gels.  YPD provides
a non-redundant list of the known yeast proteins and many of their 
properties in a spreadsheet format.  It complements the sequence databases 
both in content and in format.  Using standard spreadsheet software, one 
can sort or search the database by gene name, isoelectric point, molecular 
weight, codon bias, subcellular fraction, type of modification, functional 
categories, precursor length, N-terminal sequence, and protein name.
	There is an optional format for use in a word processor or text editor.

	YPD can also be used via World Wide Web (WWW), thanks to the efforts
of Jerry Latter of the QUEST Protein Database Center and Tom Boutell.  See
our home page at http://siva.cshl.org/index.html.

	YPD currently contains data on 3050 proteins of known sequence.  The 
database will be updated periodically to include new yeast proteins that 
appear in the sequence databases and to add new information about the yeast 
proteins obtained from scans of the current and prior literature.  I hope 
that YPD will be useful to the yeast community and that users will provide 
feedback including comments, additions, and corrections.
