We have introduced new features to the Advanced Search:

  • There are now two query reuse options: store a query in your web browser cache, or download a JSON file that can be uploaded later to re-run.
  • You can now query for genes that interact genetically or physically with a specified gene.
  • The FYPO query now offers options to choose nulls (deletions or disruptions), wild-type overexpression, or all alleles. The search results will include any genes that have an allele that matches the allele criteria and the chosen phenotype.

A new genetics primer, aimed at researchers interested in using fission yeast as a model system, has recently been published. The primer includes a brief history of fission yeast research, an introduction to available genetic tools, and the use of PomBase for data analysis
