Madison was a great place for a yeast meeting.  There is a very nice
community and a perfect place for the community of yeast to assemble.
The meeting was a great success for SGD.  E-mail is good but seeing
and discussing ideas with people face-to-face is always more
productive, and a lot more fun.

You should already see some changes to the SGD pages as a result of
the Madison meeting.  Many people had suggestions for changes that
would make information easier to obtain.  We should have several more
enhancements added very soon.  You'll also find a few more cross-links
between SGD and NCBI's Entrez pages.

I encourage everyone to send suggestions or questions to the SGD, the
e-mail address is below.  We do appreciate the suggestions and believe
this is helping make the SGD resource more useful to the yeast
community, and as a result useful to everyone else too.

If you have a lab Web page and would like it added to the Yeast
Virtual-Library page please sent me the URL.

We (SGD) also wish to thank Mark and Fred plus the Genetics Society of
America staff all of whom assisted us in arranging the computer demos
at Madison.
