ready Fission Yeast Phenotype Ontology


General Information
FYPO is being developed to support the comprehensive and detailed representation of phenotypes in PomBase, the online fission yeast resource (www.pombase.org). 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.

Implementing Databases (2)
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/
