How to Get Multiple Sequences from the Yeast Genome Database

The Saccharomyces Genome Database is a really nice tool to get yeast gene info. I used it for the first time this past week.

I had to retrieve the sequence of 50+ yeast genes and individually downloading 50+ fasta files seemed really tedious.

Eventually I figured out you could retrieve multiple genomic sequences using YeastMine.

The YeastMine template query feature accepts comma separated genes.

The resulting genomic DNA sequences can then be exported to CSVs.

Seasoned SGD users probably already knew about this feature, but it took me a while to figure out (I did not have any luck searching for this topic).

Hopefully this post will save someone some time!
