Greetings, all!  The nonprofit ATCC (http://www.atcc.org) 
has updated its pombe collection to include commonly 
used strains, expression vectors, general purpose vectors, 
and libraries.  They also have "kits" with collections of the 
above, at a much reduced fee.

If you are getting started in pombe, start with the ATCC, which
provides a lot of material in one place. 

If you are a pombe person, consider depositing generally
useful materials with the ATCC, which will distribute them for
you and make it easy for people to get access.  (this is a
real relief for my lab, which gets numerous requests every week).

Our on line  pombe database now includes
 a table  listing all the ATCC's pombe materials and 
accession numbers. 

And don't forget to visit our fission yeast site, including
a compendium of pombe on the web
