About the Schizosaccharomyces pombe genome
Schizosaccharomyces pombe, or fission yeast, is a single celled free-living ascomycete fungus with many of the features found in the cells of multicellular eukaryotes. It provides an excellent model organism for the study of a number of eukaryotic processes, particularly cell cycle control, DNA repair and recombination, centromere structure and function.
