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 ( 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/
