Gene Characterisation Status Descriptions
Experimentally characterised: Completely or partially characterised in a small scale experiment, with some published information about the biological role (corresponding to any of the fission yeast GO slim biological process terms)
Role inferred from homology: A biological role (as above, a fission yeast GO slim term) is inferred from homology to an experimentally characterised gene product
Conserved protein (unknown biological role): Conserved outside the Schizosaccharomyces, but nothing known about the biological role in any organism
Schizosaccharomyces specific protein, uncharacterised: Unpublished and found only in fission yeast (S. pombe, S. octosporus, S. japonicus, S. cryophilus); nothing known about biological role. May be single copy or a member of a multi-member family.
S. pombe specific protein, uncharacterised: Unpublished and found only in S. pombe (not detected in other Schizosaccharomyces species); nothing known about biological role
Dubious: Unlikely to be protein coding
