If what you seek is the identification on yeast genes you can use a
the Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) resource. We provide several
downloadable tables that contain information on all standard yeast
genes. If you are just interested in protein encoding genes the files
in the following directory might be of use to you.
a text and TAB version is available.
The orf_descriptions.txt file contains the columns:
ORF Gene Process Function
The Process and Function columns are now truncated to 30 characters.
The orf_descriptions.tab file contains the columns:
ORF Gene Length Process Function SGDID
Length and SGDID are new columns. No columns are truncated.
You can also browse the SGD database starting at:
the main home for SGD is at:
SGD also provides a BLAST resource. The output provides links into
the database, and to others where appropriate.
