ready Fission Yeast Phenotype Ontology

Abbreviation: FYPO

General Information
FYPO is being developed to support the comprehensive and detailed representation of phenotypes in PomBase, the online fission yeast resource ( Its scope is similar to that of the Ascomycete Phenotype Ontology (APO), but FYPO includes more detailed pre-composed terms as well as computable definitions.

PomBase is a model organism database that provides organization of and access to scientific data for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. PomBase supports genomic sequence and features, genome-wide datasets and manual literature curation as well as providing structural and functional annotation and access to large-scale data sets.

SYSGRO: A resource of fission yeast phenotypic data & analysis
SYSGRO is a high throughput/high-content microscopy fission yeast phenotype database from the Carazo Salas Lab in the University of Cambridge UK, funded thanks to a EU ERC Starting Grant. It contains cell shape, microtubule & cell cycle progression computational phenotypes for 3004 non-essential gene knockout cell lines. It is the first multi-phenotypic microscopy profiling functional genomics resource for any organism/

OBO Foundry
The Open Biological and Biomedical Ontology (OBO) Foundry is a collective of ontology developers that are committed to collaboration and adherence to shared principles. The mission of the OBO Foundry is to develop a family of interoperable ontologies that are both logically well-formed and scientifically accurate. To achieve this, OBO Foundry participants voluntarily adhere to and contribute to the development of an evolving set of principles including open use, collaborative development, non-overlapping and strictly-scoped content, and common syntax and relations, based on ontology models that work well, such as the Gene Ontology (GO). The OBO Foundry is overseen by an Operations Committee with Editorial, Technical and Outreach working groups.

Cyclebase is a database to visualize and download results from genome-wide cell-cycle-related experiments. In addition to genome annotation, Cyclebase also provides mRNA data, protein expression data, and integrated cell-cycle phenotype information from high-content screens and model organism databases.
