Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000190235.1 from ENA/EMBL

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a unicellular fungus. It is commonly known as baker's, brewer's or budding yeast. It is used in the production of a number of human foodstuffs, including alcoholic beverages and in the baking industry, and is widely used as a model species in the study of eukaryotic biology. In 1996, the genome of S. cerevisiae was the first eukaryotic genome to be completely deciphered.

The S. cerevisiae genome is about 12.2 Mb with 6,275 genes, compactly organized on 16 chromosomes. Only about 5,800 of these genes are believed to be functional. Artificial domestication has also generated a number of genetically diverse, industrial-specific isolates. For example the wine making strain VL3 contains a whole-chromosome amplification in chrVIII.
