As far as I know, no one has set up the pombe strains and plasmids
necessary to do a two hybrid screen in fission yeast.  it would
take new plasmids, some well-dissected promoter elements, and 
a fair bit of tinkering to get it set up with GAL or lexA binding
sequences and reporter genes. Remember that the architecture of the
pombe promoter is not the same as cerevisiae's.
