Curation status of publications containing gene-specific data for S. pombe
Did You Know ... ?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome suggestions that will improve or extend PomBase documentation.

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...

Several of the PomBase staff, joined by our advisor Sir Paul Nurse, have published a Comment in BMC Biology briefly describing the importance of model organism databases to the success of modern biomedical research:
Oliver SG, Lock A, Harris MA, Nurse P, Wood V. 2016. Model organism databases: essential resources that need the support of both funders and users.
BMC Biol. 2016 14(1): 49. doi: 10.1186/s12915-016-0276-z. PMID:27334346
