PomBase has several types of documentation and help to assist you in finding data, using tools and features, and more. The main Documentation page provides a convenient overview of the documentation available for PomBase gene pages, searches, and other features, as well as resources available as part of the Ensembl Genomes project. "Help" links throughout the gene pages link to relevant portions of the documentation. We also maintain a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

If you can't find what you need in the documentation or FAQ, you can ask about anything via the PomBase Helpdesk: go to the web form or email helpdesk@pombase.org. We also welcome suggestions that will improve or extend PomBase documentation.
