  • Genes are grouped into general functional categories. SGD descriptions are derived from the Saccharomyces Genome Database. Phenotypes are: M, Met (methionine auxotroph); M+, Met+ (methionine prototroph); E, ethionine sensitive (only M+ strains can be tested for ethionine sensitivity); C, canavanine sensitive; i, reported on SGD to be an inviable null mutation in large-scale surveys; v, reported on SGD to be a viable null deletion in large-scale surveys.

  • a Viability not stated on SGD, but the haploid deletion and homozygous null strains exist.

  • b Data in large-scale surveys include both viable and inviable phenotypes. Cells with a deletion of the CDC40 or POP2 genes in the S288C background that BY4743 was derived are viable.
