PomBase 2015: updates to the fission yeast database.
Bottom Line: Recent improvements to the site extend annotation specificity, improve usability and allow for monthly data updates.Both in-house curators and community researchers provide manually curated data to PomBase.The genome browser provides access to published high-throughput data sets and the genomes of three additional Schizosaccharomyces species (Schizosaccharomyces cryophilus, Schizosaccharomyces japonicus and Schizosaccharomyces octosporus).

Mentions: To accommodate annotation extensions, PomBase has adapted its Chado and Ensembl relational database schemata and loading procedures and enhanced the gene page ontology annotation displays. On PomBase gene pages, annotation extensions are shown in rows below the ontology term, with the relevant evidence code and annotation source. Identifiers and relation strings are converted to human-friendly text, such as a gene name or ontology term, wherever possible. For example, Figure 2A shows annotations to GO:0045944 from the ste11 (SPBC32C12.02) gene page. Annotations without extensions are displayed first, followed by those with extensions, and the bottom row shows a compound annotation extension (26).
