What do all the columns of the datasheet for the Yeast GST-tagged collection mean?

To address several questions regarding the datafile for the Yeast GST-tagged collection we have listed some of the most common questions and answers: 1) What does the column E represent? Column D is “Gene Transformed”. If the source lab was unable to generate a yeast transformant because they couldn't retrieve any plasmid DNA from the original collection, then Column D will have the word BLANK and column E will have the gene name that they attempted to transform. 2) What is the difference among columns D, E and F? Column D is the Gene name that was transformed. If it says BLANK, the source lab was unable to generate a yeast transformant because they couldn't retrieve any plasmid DNA from the original collection, and column E will have the gene name that they attempted to transform. Column F is a complete list of all of the yeast genes that were attempted for this collection. (Column D and E combined). 3) What do you mean by "empty vector" in columns D and F? These wells should contain the empty pEGH Yeast GST fusion plasmid map-we have not verified or sequences this vector in house, but we believe it to be ~10,000bp. 5) What do you mean by N, X, Y and cells with no data in column G (Sequence ID)? Y under Sequence ID column means yes - correct sequence ID. N = no - sequence identity was incorrect and I believe X means incorrect - not corresponding to sequence in database 6) What do you mean by EMPTY, M, N, X, Y and cells with no data in column G (Frameshift?)? This was annotation used by the Snyder lab (Heng Zhu) in their original spreadsheet. I believe Y= yes a frameshift, N=no frameshift - so the ORF is in frame, and M=maybe (I proceed with caution when using these plasmids).
