PomBase has pionnered a community curation system that enables researchers to contribute publication-based annotations directly to database curators. By involving bench scientists directly in the curation process, PomBase improves the timeliness and depth of its annotations, and raises awareness of the value curation adds to scientific databases and literature. Like all annotations in PomBase, community contributions are shared among databases such as GO, BioGRID, UniProtKB, etc. If you have a publication that you would like to curate for PomBase, you can go to the curation tool, Canto, and search for its PubMed ID, or contact the PomBase curators via the helpdesk.

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.
