Technical Notes

Data was downloaded the 17 August 2015 using the 'Table Browser tool from the UCSC Genome Browser. The resulting TXT file was parsed for genes with a valid protein ID using the following code:

awk '
  while( (getline < "/db/genome/sacCer3/chr_NC_gi") > 0 ){
    chr["chr" $1] = $2
$12 != "n/a" && $1 !~ "bin" {
  if ($4 == "+"){
    start = $5
    start = $6
  if (chr[$3] != "") print chr[$3], "TSS", start, $4, 1, $2
}' sacCer3_SDGgenes.txt | sort -k1,1 -k3,3n -k4,4  > sgdGenes.sga
