May be I am somewhat biased, but I like my "Yeast Strain 
Collection" best B-). It is "just a Hypercard stack", but 
its speed is fine on fast Macs (acceptable on medium fast Macs,
worth its price on slow Macs). And searching is quite fast and
allows exactly those searches you need for S. cerevisiae, e.g.,
any combination of wild type and mutant genes, mating type, gene
combinations in diploids, and arbitrary text.
As a special bonus for FileMaker users, you can not copy and 
paste records in my program, too :-)

The program is freeware and available from
