Did You Know ... ?

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.
