General S. cerevisiae information

  • An introduction to yeast, the most ideal eukaryotic microorganism for biological studies, written by Fred Sherman.
  • A table describing the gene targets of the different RNA polymerases in S. cerevisiae.
  • A tutorial from the University of Saskatchewan provides an introduction to SGD and to S. cerevisiae molecular biology and genetics.
  • A list of websites with relevance to S. cerevisiae molecular biology and genetics and to general molecular biology.
  • Search the Yeast BioSci (a.k.a. BioNet) Electronic Conference

Educational resources

  • Genetics Education Network Tom Manney's (Kansas State University) yeast experiments for undergrads and high school students. A well-done and informative web site for yeast in the classroom.
  • Yeast Education Network An archive of yeast-based teaching tools for the undergraduate classroom and laboratory. This site also includes most of the Education Workshop talks from YGM 2008.
  • Research Link 2000 Aimed at undergraduate classrooms, this is an offshoot of Tom Manney's yeast experiments. It also lists other model organisms.
  • MendelWeb, an educational resource on the origins of classical genetics.
  • American Society for Microbiology. The ASM website lists resources in its education section. The ASM publishes numerous books on microbiology education at various levels.
  • Scitable A free library providing overviews of key science concepts, with a focus on genetics, compiled by the Nature Publishing Group.

Schizosaccharomyces pombe information

Candida albicans information

  • CandidaDB, a genomic database for C. albicans, part of the Galar Fungail Consortium project

Links to other fungal information

Fungal genome sequencing projects





  • The Génolevures project, featuring partial genomic sequence for 13 Hemiascomycete species


  • There is also list of currently sequenced or in progress fungal genome projects with references.

Fungal genome database projects

  • CryptoBase, a scientific database resource at UCSF for C. neoformans var. grubii (serotype A)
  •, a scientific database resource at Duke University providing Genome Browser, BLAST, and downloadable genome annotations for many fungal genomes.
