Saccharomyces cerevisiae, commonly known as baker’s or budding yeast, is an attractive organism for design-based engineering because it is an industrially important organism with a well-annotated genome sequence and an extensive collection of resources for molecular analyses. This chapter describes the utility of Saccharomyces Genome Database for analysis of S. cerevisiae genes and identification of homologs, strategies for integration and analysis of gene expression data, and the genetic resources available for doing experiments using S. cerevisiae.
