Organism ImageSchizosaccharomyces pombe (fission yeast)

Fission yeast, an excellent model organism.

Lineage: Eukaryota[10756]; Fungi[3941]; Dikarya[3626]; Ascomycota[2790]; Taphrinomycotina[30]; Schizosaccharomycetes[4]; Schizosaccharomycetales[4]; Schizosaccharomycetaceae[4]; Schizosaccharomyces[4]; Schizosaccharomyces pombe[1]
The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is an excellent model organism for studying eukaryotic processes such as cell cycle control, mitosis and meiosis, DNA repair and recombination, splicing, and the checkpoint controls important for genome stability. Schizosaccharomyces pombe forms a rod-shaped cell that grows at its tips and divides More...
