S. pombe ORFeome Clones

Schizosaccharomyces pombe ORFeome clones were deposited by Dr. Minoru Yoshida, Chemical Genetics Lagoratory, RIKEN; These consists of 4,900 entry clones. Clones are provided individually.

Establishing an entire protein assay system of “fission yeast”: Trends from genetic information to entire products in genomic analysis [2006.06.26 RIKEN Press release (pdf)]
Localization data is available at
S. pombe Postgenome Database

  • The Schizosaccharomyces pombe Postgenome Database (SPD) contains the results of systematic analysis of protein expression and localization based on fission yeast ORFeome cloning as well as basic information on genes and proteins.
  • The ORF collection currently covers 99.2% of the fission yeast protein-coding genes and pseudogenes that are reported by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
