The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is an important model organism for basic eukaryotic cell biology. Originally, its insights included contributions to understanding the cell cycle, but more recently these have expanded into chromosome structure, cell morphology, signalling, environmental stress response and protein turnover, to name a few. The purpose of the meeting is to:
- Bring together researchers in the fission yeast community to exchange ideas and establish of collaborations between labs working on different S. pombe topics.
- Welcome new labs into the fission yeast field and encourage them to become regular participants in field activities.
- Give young scientists, students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior principal investigators an opportunity to present their work to a broad audience.
