PomBase coordinates S. pombe gene nomenclature in collaboration with the fission yeast Gene Naming Committee (GNC). We encourage all authors and reviewers to ensure that gene names are registered prior to publication. If you want to name a gene, please visit our Gene Registry page, which links to the S. pombe gene naming guidelines, the gene name registration form, and additional information.

With the October 2013 update, gene pages now include "Target Of" annotations, which describe genes that affect the gene of interest. These annotations are essentially the reciprocal of ontology annotation extensions. Each "Target Of" annotation includes a relationship that indicates how the genes are connected, the name and product of the second gene, and a reference. Genes listed under "Target Of" may include upstream regulators or enzymes that modify the product of the gene of interest. For example, the "Target Of" annotations for cdc2 indicate that it is a substrate of, and regulated by, the kinase Wee1 and the phosphatase Cdc25 (among others...
