Welcome to the Yeast Protein Localization Database, YPL.db. The intention of this site is to provide information about the subcellular localization of proteins in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. For the localization studies we use the GFP fusion technique and Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM). YPL.db is an ongoing project with the aim to provide localization data for all yeast proteins. Labs using the same technique are welcome to submit their data.
