PomBase (www.pombase.org) is a new model organism database established to provide access to comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date molecular data and biological information for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe to effectively support both exploratory and hypothesis-driven research. PomBase encompasses annotation of genomic sequence and features, comprehensive manual literature curation and genome-wide data sets, and supports sophisticated user-defined queries. The implementation of…

PomBase 2015: updates to the fission yeast database
TLDR
PomBase provides a central hub for the fission yeast community, supporting both exploratory and hypothesis-driven research, and provides users easy access to data ranging from the sequence level, to molecular and phenotypic annotations, through to the display of genome-wide high-throughput studies.
PomBase 2018: user-driven reimplementation of the fission yeast database provides rapid and intuitive access to diverse, interconnected information
TLDR
The PomBase database has undergone a complete redevelopment, resulting in a more fully integrated, better-performing service that provides a rich set of modular, reusable tools that can be deployed to create new, or enhance existing, organism-specific databases.
Chapter 4 PomBase : The Scientific Resource for Fission Yeast
TLDR
This chapter provides insight into the curation philosophy and data organization at PomBase, and provides a guide to using PomBase for infrequent visitors and anyone considering exploring S. pombe in their research.

Fission Yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe: A Unicellular “Micromammal” Model Organism
TLDR
The advantages of and the advancements in using fission yeast for studying biological processes that are characteristic of metazoans to decipher the underlining molecular mechanisms fundamental to all eukaryotes are focused on.
An Ancient Yeast for Young Geneticists: A Primer on the Schizosaccharomyces pombe Model System
TLDR
The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe appears to have evolved less rapidly than S. cerevisiae so that it retains more characteristics of the common ancient yeast ancestor, causing it to share more features with metazoan cells.
GeneDB—an annotation database for pathogens
TLDR
GeneDB (http://www.genedb.org) is a genome database for prokaryotic and eukaryotic pathogens and closely related organisms that combines data from completed and ongoing genome projects with curated annotation, which is readily accessible from a web based resource.
AnGeLi: A Tool for the Analysis of Gene Lists from Fission Yeast
TLDR
AnGeLi offers a rigorous yet flexible statistical analysis platform for rich insights into functional enrichments and biological context for query gene lists, thus providing a powerful exploratory tool through which S. pombe researchers can uncover fresh perspectives and unexpected connections from genomic data.
FYPO: the fission yeast phenotype ontology
TLDR
The fission yeast phenotype ontology (FYPO) is a modular ontology that uses several existing ontologies from the open biological and biomedical ontologies (OBO) collection as building blocks, including the phenotypic quality ontology PATO, the Gene Ontology and Chemical Entities of Biological Interest.
Extensive Mass Spectrometry-based Analysis of the Fission Yeast Proteome
TLDR
The extensive and publicly available S. pombe PeptideAtlas together with the generated proteotypic peptide spectral library will be a useful resource for future targeted, in-depth, and quantitative proteomic studies on this microorganism.

TLDR
Differences in gene content and regulation explain why, unlike the budding yeast of Saccharomycotina, fission yeasts cannot use ethanol as a primary carbon source and provide tools for investigation across the Schizosaccharomyces clade.

TLDR
Ensembl Genomes is a new portal offering integrated access to genome-scale data from non-vertebrate species of scientific interest, developed using the Ensembl genome annotation and visualisation platform.
The genome sequence of Schizosaccharomyces pombe
TLDR
The genome of fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe), which contains the smallest number of protein-coding genes yet recorded for a eukaryote, is sequenced and highly conserved genes important for eukARYotic cell organization including those required for the cytoskeleton, compartmentation, cell-cycle control, proteolysis, protein phosphorylation and RNA splicing are identified.

Gene Ontology: tool for the unification of biology
TLDR
The goal of the Gene Ontology Consortium is to produce a dynamic, controlled vocabulary that can be applied to all eukaryotes even as knowledge of gene and protein roles in cells is accumulating and changing.
