Info • Schizosaccharomyces pombe


[Jan 2013]
The genome sequence and gene prediction of Schizosaccharomyces pombe were not determined by the JGI, but was downloaded from Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by pombase and is therefore not automatically updated. This copy of the genome does not include the mitochondrial chromosome, but includes the telommeric contig and matig type contig in addition to the three chromosomes. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to the known and predicted proteins.
