PomBase is a comprehensive database for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, providing structural and functional annotation, literature curation and access to large-scale data sets.
Alert: Please note that GeneDB S. pombe is no longer available as of May 14, 2013. Please let us know (email email@example.com or use the web form) if PomBase lacks any features or tools that you used in GeneDB, or if you notice any missing data or performance issues.

We have updated the data available on the PomBase web site. The data now includes manual curation through 13 May, 2013.

As of 14 May 2013, the old GeneDB database for S. pombe is no longer available. This resource consisted of static web pages, was not updated after March 2012, and not supported by an underlying relational database. The PomBase site fully supersedes GeneDB S. pombe, and provides improved infrastructure that will meet the current and future needs of the fission yeast community. Please e-mail the helpdesk if you cannot find a replacement for any GeneDB functionality in PomBase.

We have extended the Gene Expression section of each gene page to support the display of quantitative expression data, and are now showing data from two publications:
- Marguerat S, Schmidt A, Codlin S, Chen W, Aebersold R, BählerJ. 2012. "Quantitative analysis of fission yeast transcriptomes and proteomes in proliferating and quiescent cells." Cell 151:671-683.
- Wu JQ, Pollard TD. 2005. "Counting cytokinesis proteins globally and locally in fission yeast." Science 310:310-314.
We will also soon refine the display of the new expression data, and can add more datasets upon request. We thank Sam Marguerat for preparing the data from both papers for inclusion in PomBase.
We have also updated the...
