3. Visit the Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding yeast) genome database (SGD) Web site to learn about the yeast transcription factor HSF1. Go to SGD and look up the following information using the global gene hunter. Enter the name of the gene, limit the search by unclicking boxes as needed, and click Submit. Use the links on the following page to answer these next questions. (Note: There is a large group of Ph.D. fellows who scan the literature frequently and add the information to the SGD database.)
  1. On what chromosome does the gene reside?
  2. What is the mature length of the protein?
  3. What are the SwissProt and PIR accession numbers?
  4. Is the gene found in other species—not at all, one or two, or many? If so, give an example of the name of the similar gene in another species.
