Dear Yeast-Netters,

The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) has several new features to

1.  An experimental Java program ("S. cerevisiae Genomic View") is
available to SGD users.  The URL is: 


You can choose whether to display a section of genomic sequence in the
Features Map format (showing the locations of genetic features such as
ORFs, RNA genes, centromeres, and Ty elements), the Physical Map format
(showing all the above-mentioned genetic features as well as the postions
of overlapping ATCC clones), or the Combined Physical and Genetic Map by
using the pull-down menu in the interactive display. 

We welcome your comments and suggestions about the S. cerevisiae Genomic
View. Please e-mail us at: yeast-curator at genome.stanford.edu

2.  SGD has introduced a new tool for finding and displaying DNA
sequences, called "SEQ and Display."  Its URL is: 


This program allows you to obtain sequence information or view a variety
of different genetic and physical map displays for all the DNA sequences
in the database. You can search by gene name, ORF name, sequence name or
chromosome coordinates. 

3.  The new "SGD Directory" provides an organized listing of all our
standard Web pages, forms and programs.  This useful tool helps you
navigate the SGD Web site.  You can access this page at: 


As always, we appreciate your comments and suggestions.  You can contact
us by e-mail at yeast-curator at genome.stanford.edu, by telephone at
+1-415-725-8956, or by FAX at +1-415-723-7016. 

Best regards,
