Proteome Releases Database for Schizosaccharomyces Pombe


Proteome of Beverly, Mass., has released PombePD, a database for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

Patterned after Proteome’s Yeast Proteome Database, PombePD offers researchers the latest experimental results curated directly from the scientific literature and built on the framework of the complete S. pombe genome sequence, which was produced by the Sanger Center.

“S. pombe is an important model organism for human disease, especially for cell cycle research and cancer biology, as well as for antifungal drug discovery and the expression of heterologous proteins,” said James Garrels, Proteome’s president and CEO.

The PombePD database is the latest addition to the company’s BioKnowledge Library, a collection of interlinked model organism databases that includes a S. cerevisiae Proteome Database, C. elegans Proteome Database, and a C. albicans Proteome Database.

The model organism databases are freely available to academic users on the Proteome website. Proteome offers subscription to commercial users.
