I assume that you ask for a timetable of genome sequencing projects. Otherwise,
it depends on the source, and what you call 'confidential'. There are yeast
genome sequencing projects which have the oblications as written in grants
(contracts from the EU) stating that the full sequences are to be made
available at the end of the project upon their completion. Other sequences
are collected at some sites for internal purposes and, as they are not
published or generated in a contract-type of environment, will hardly be
subjected to a defined timetable as the ones as mentioned above.
One of the concerns raised in the past was the appearance of 'unfinished'
genomic sequences (not necessarily in yeast), which cover those as made
available on FTP servers, but are not present in the public databases which
are typically scanned (EBI/EMBL, Genbank, DDBJ). Be aware of the quality of
annotation of those sequences.
