We have analyzed the set of genes expressed from the yeast genome, herein called the transcriptome, using serial analysis of gene expression. Analysis of 60,633 transcripts revealed 4,665 genes, with expression levels ranging from 0.3 to over 200 transcripts per cell. Of these genes, 1981 had known functions, while 2684 were previously uncharacterized. The integration of positional information with gene expression data allowed for the generation of chromosomal expression maps identifying… 
Global analysis of gene expression in yeast
TLDR
An intense effort to comprehensively catalogue the expressed genes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to determine the absolute and relative abundance of transcript and protein levels under different cellular conditions is described.
The Arabidopsis Root Transcriptome by Serial Analysis of Gene Expression. Gene Identification Using the Genome Sequence1
TLDR
The results indicate that the use of the annotated genome sequence greatly improves gene identification in SAGE studies, and it is shown that an unambiguous analysis of most of the individual genes belonging to 12 different ion transporter multigene families are allowed.
Systematic discovery of new genes in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome.
TLDR
This investigation provides an updated and comprehensive annotation of the yeast genome, validates additional concepts in the study of genomes in silico, and increases the expected numbers of coding sequences in a genome with the corresponding impact on future functional genomics and proteomics studies.

TLDR
The yeast genome project enters a post-sequencing phase that will concentrate on a comprehensive determination of gene function, and novel techniques have been developed to undertake genome-wide functional analysis at the levels of phenotype, transcript and protein.
Complementary Profiling of Gene Expression at the Transcriptome and Proteome Levels in Saccharomyces cerevisiae*S
TLDR
Insights into the perturbative effects on genes involved in respiration, energy generation, and protein synthesis were obtained that would not have been apparent from measurements made at either the messenger RNA or protein level alone, illustrating the power of integrating different types of data obtained from the same sample for the comprehensive characterization of biological systems and processes.
Dynamics of gene expression revealed by comparison of serial analysis of gene expression transcript profiles from yeast grown on two different carbon sources.
TLDR
A genome-wide characterization of mRNA transcript levels in yeast grown on the fatty acid oleate, determined using Serial Analysis of Gene Expression (SAGE) revealed the dramatic adaptive response of yeast to a change in carbon source.
Dissecting the Regulatory Circuitry of a Eukaryotic Genome
TLDR
The results reveal an unanticipated level of regulation which is superimposed on that due to gene-specific transcription factors, a novel mechanism for coordinate regulation of specific sets of genes when cells encounter limiting nutrients, and evidence that the ultimate targets of signal transduction pathways can be identified within the initiation apparatus.
Transcript analysis of 1003 novel yeast genes using high‐throughput northern hybridizations
TLDR
It was discovered that ORFs that are highly expressed following a nutritional upshift tend to employ favoured codons, whereas those overexpressed in starvation conditions do not and are interpreted in terms of a model in which competition between mRNA molecules for translational capacity selects for codons translated by abundant tRNAs.
Transcriptome analysis of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using serial analysis of gene expression.
TLDR
An important application of the SAGE technique is discussed—namely, the identification of previously unidentified transcripts from NORFs, an approach that allows the rapid, detailed, systematic, and quantitative analysis of thousands of transcripts.
Large-scale analysis of the yeast genome by transposon tagging and gene disruption
TLDR
This work has developed a transposon-tagging strategy for the genome-wide analysis of disruption phenotypes, gene expression and protein localization, and has applied this method to the large-scale analysis of gene function in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Life with 6000 Genes
TLDR
The genome of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been completely sequenced through a worldwide collaboration and provides information about the higher order organization of yeast's 16 chromosomes and allows some insight into their evolutionary history.
Large-scale analysis of gene expression, protein localization, and gene disruption in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
A large-scale screen to identify genes expressed at different times during the life cycle of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to determine the subcellular locations of many of the encoded gene products will allow researchers who identify a yeast gene to determine immediately whether that gene is expressed at a specific time during theLife cycle and whether its gene product localizes to a specific sub cellular location.
A general approach to the isolation of cell cycle-regulated genes in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
The isolation of two previously uncharacterized genes that are transcribed at points in the cell cycle to which specific transcriptional activation has not been assigned, namely, mitosis and early G1 phase are reported.
The yeast α-factor receptor: structural properties deduced from the sequence of the STE2 gene
TLDR
The predicted STE2 protein contains seven hydrophobic segments, suggesting that the alpha-factor receptor is an integral membrane protein and no extensive homology at the primary sequence level was detected between the predictedSTE2 protein and other available protein sequences.
Transcriptional control of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae PGK gene by RAP1.
TLDR
The promoter of the yeast glycolytic gene encoding phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) contains an upstream activation sequence between bases -538 and -402 upstream of the initiating ATG, and it is demonstrated that the yeast protein which interacts with the AC sequence is the DNA-binding protein RAP1.

The results showed that the promoter region and 5' half of rhp51+ are sufficient to confer damage-responsiveness while the 3' end of the gene alone can direct the formation of multiple, discrete 3' ends of the transcripts.
