We have updated the data available on the PomBase web site to include manual curation through March 9, 2016.

Important: We have corrected a problem that made erroneous interaction data and literature appear on some gene pages.

The gene pages now include interaction data from the Vo et al. proteome-wide study (curated by BioGRID and imported into PomBase):
Vo TV et al. 2016. A Proteome-wide Fission Yeast Interactome Reveals Network Evolution Principles from Yeasts to Human. Cell 164(1-2): 310-23. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2015.11.037 PMID:26771498.
