The Yeast Metabolome Database (YMDB) is a manually curated database of small molecule metabolites found in or produced by Saccharomyces cerevisiae (also known as Baker’s yeast and Brewer’s yeast). This database covers metabolites described in textbooks, scientific journals, metabolic reconstructions and other electronic databases. YMDB contains metabolites arising from normal S. cerevisiae metabolism under defined laboratory conditions as well as metabolites generated by S. cerevisiae when used in baking and in the production of wines, beers and spirits. YMDB currently contains 15813 small molecules with 857 associated enzymes and 138 associated transporters. Each small molecule has 48 data fields describing the metabolite, its chemical properties and links to spectral and chemical databases. Each enzyme/transporter is linked to its associated metabolites and has 30 data fields describing both the gene and corresponding protein.
