Yeast Deletion Database (consortium members only)



These files contain information about the S. cerevisiae deletion strains.  The following is a list of all available columns and descriptions. 

Columns and descriptions are:

1. Rec_num:  Record numbers refer to each of strain backgrounds:
>10,000: mat a haploids
10,000-19,999:   mat alpha haploids
20,000-29,999:   heterozygous diploids
30,000-39,999:    homozygous diploids 
Four digit numbers preceded by an “n” are general record numbers and are not indicative of any strain type.  For a description of the genotypes, see here

2. ORF name:  Systematic name from SGDTM, named from the time of strain generation.  Caveats:  This means an ORF name may now be considered an alias name.  For example, YJL206C-A and YJL205C-A are aliases of YJL205C (gene name: NCE101), but the deletion strain name is under the historical name:  YJL206C-A.

3. deletion_ alias: Appended characters to the ORF name distinguishes multiple deletions:
_t:   denotes a truncated, or partial deletion
_d:  deleted or removed ORF in SGD
_1:  numbers distinguish deletion strains with the same name

4. Essential:  Disruption of ORF is lethal; strain is in the heterozygous background only.
