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.

In response to planned cuts to database funding, leading model organism researchers have prepared an open letter to NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins to demonstrate support for the independent community-focused databases that are essential to their work. Although PomBase is not directly funded by NIH, we collaborate extensively with those that are, including the GO Consortium and several model organism databases.
The Genetics Society of America website where the letter can be viewed and signed is at http://www.genetics-gsa.org/MODsupport
Please sign the letter to add your voice in support of the databases that help make your research possible. For more...
