PomBase has recently launched a community curation project 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.

About PomBase

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

Tuesday, 19th Aug, 2014

We have updated the data available on the PomBase web site to include manual curation through August 8, 2014. Community curation now covers over 190 papers. Gene pages now include links to the S. pombe PeptideAtlas, a database of peptides identified in tandem mass spectrometry proteomics experiments.

We have updated the data available on the PomBase web site to include manual curation through July 8, 2014. The gene pages also now display protein modification data from an additional large-scale dataset:

Koch A, Krug K, Pengelley S, Macek B, Hauf S. 2011. Mitotic substrates of the kinase aurora with roles in chromatin regulation identified through quantitative phosphoproteomics of fission yeast. Sci Signal. 4(179): rs6 doi: 10.1126/scisignal.2001588 PMID:21712547

We have also made corrections to some residue positions affected by sequence updates in one of the modification datasets we added last month:

Carpy A, Krug K, Graf S, Koch A, Popic S, Hauf S, Macek B. 2014....

Wednesday, 9th Jul, 2014

We have updated the data available on the PomBase web site. The data now includes manual curation through June 6, 2014. In other improvements, a downloadable file of intron sequence data (FASTA format) is now available, and phenotypes are now included in the Target Of section on gene pages.

The gene pages also now display protein modification data from two large-scale datasets:
