Yeast and Y Guide - Resources and Review

An educational resource covering bacteria, fungi, viruses, biological control, environmental microbiology, disease of plants, human and animals. It provides illustrated profiles of microorganisms in 28 categories, such as slime moulds, penicillin and other antibiotics, airborne microorganisms, yeasts and yeast like fungi, lichens and myxobacteria.
Brief introduction to the classification and characteristics of yeast, its commercial and scientific uses, and yeast genetics. Includes a list of suggested reading.
Database of over 6000 proteins, searchable by name and keyword, or browsable by genetic property, functional category, molecular environment and cellular role.
Collection of selected links related to the yeast model organisms, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding, bakers' and sometimes brewers'), Schizosaccharomyces pombe (fission), and Candida albicans.
The Dutch node of the Microbial Information Network Europe (MINE), CBS maintains and distributes collections of cultures such as fungi, yeasts, bacteria, phabagen, aphyllophorales and fusarium. Databases can be searched by species name, strain number, or properties of species and strains. Also provides identification and research services, and offers consultancy, information services and training courses.
Gallery of images illustrating blood, cellular ultrastructure, digestion, hair, insects, microbes and diseases, parasites, plankton, pollen and spores, plants, yeast, and moulds.
SGD is a scientific database of the molecular biology and genetics of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is commonly known as baker's or budding yeast. Includes sequence analysis and tools, graphical views of yeast chromosomes, guide to yeast references and gene registry.
The official journal of the International Committee on Systematic Bacteriology of the International Union of Microbiological Societies. IJSB publishes articles concerning the systematics of bacteria, yeasts and yeast
like organisms, including taxonomy, nomenclature, identification, characterisation, and culture preservation. Published quarterly.
Introduction to yeast genetics, describing yeast strains, growth and life cycles, the yeast genome, yeast vectors, gene interaction and analysis, and the role of yeasts in genetic studies. Includes a summary of keywords and a bibliography.
