This genome was sequenced by the Broad Institute.

Description of Schizosaccharomyces octosporus has been quoted from Broad.

Schizosaccharomyces octosporus is a relative of the two other known fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyces japonicus and the well studied fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. It has a very similar life style to S. pombe, the major difference being its eight-spored ascii.
