Did You Know ... ?

PomBase maintains two sets of manually curated orthologs: fission yeast (S. pombe) and budding yeast (S. cerevisiae), and fission yeast and human. Both can be queried in the simple search -- for budding yeast, use an ORF name (e.g. YBR160W); for human, use an HGNC-approved gene name (e.g. NCAPG). The complete datasets can also be downloaded.

Orthologs in species other than budding yeast and human can be searched in Compara or YOGY, as described in this FAQ.

Canto, PomBase's literature curation tool, will be unavailable for approximately 3 weeks starting at 12:00 midnight UK time (BST) tonight, 27 May 2015, while we deploy an upgraded version.

The upgraded Canto will feature an entirely new interface for annotating multi-allele phenotypes and the corresponding genotypes, as well as improved workflows for single-allele phenotypes, GO, etc. All existing annotations will be retained, and users can resume curation using the new and improved features in any unfinished sessions when Canto is back online.

We will announce when the new version of Canto is released to the public.
