General S. cerevisiae information
- A table describing the gene targets of the different polymerases in S. cerevisiae.
- An introduction to yeast, the most ideal eukaryotic microorganism for biological studies.
- An updated version the yeast primer Getting Started with Yeast written by Fred Sherman.
- Yeast Molecular Biology: A Short Compendium on Basic Features and Novel Aspects written by Horst Feldmann at the University of Munich
- A tutorial from the University of Saskatchewan provides an introduction to SGD and to S. cerevisiae molecular biology and genetics.
- SGD maintains 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
- Usenet group on yeast molecular biology: bionet.molbio.yeast
- 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.
- Research Link 2000 Aimed at undergraduate classrooms, this is an offshoot of Tom Manney's yeast experiments. It also lists other model organisms.
- Using Yeast As An Ultraviolet Light Measurement Tool. This is a Tom Manney protocol rewritten by Kevin Conant, a participant in the Woodrow Wilson Biology Institute 1993.
- MendelWeb, an educational resource on the origins of classical genetics.
- National Science Teachers Association. Resources for all science teachers from kindergarten to college.
- National Association of Biology Teachers High school teachers predominate in this organization, but there are resources for post-secondary education as well.
- American Society for Microbiology. The ASM website lists resources in its education section. The ASM publishes numerous books on microbiology education at various levels.
- Discovering Genomics, Proteomics, and Bioinformatics This website describes a course and the accompanying textbook written by A. Malcolm Campbell and Laurie J. Heyer.
- Genome Consortium for Active Teaching (GCAT) Description of the consortium and how it is working to bring functional genomics methods into the undergraduate biology curriculum.
- Issues in Genomics ActionBioscience.org lists a number of articles on genomics topics.
- MicroArray Genome Imaging and Clustering Tool (MAGIC) Open source software for analysis of large-scale gene expression datasets; developed by Laurie Heyer and her undergraduate students at Davidson College, North Carolina.

- 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)
- fungal.genome.duke.edu, a scientific database resource at Duke University providing Genome Browser, BLAST, and downloadable genome annotations for many fungal genomes.
