The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD; http://, a scienti®c database of the molecular biology and genetics of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has recently developed several new resources that allow the comparison and integration of information on a genome-wide scale, enabling the user not only to ®nd detailed information about individual genes, but also to make connections across groups of genes with common features and across different species. The Fungal Alignment

The Yeast Biochemical Pathways tool integrates groups of genes by their common roles in metabolism and displays the metabolic pathways in a graphical form. Finally, the Find Chromosomal Features search interface provides a versatile tool for querying multiple types of information in SGD.
