can somebody help us out with Schizosaccharomyces strains.
We need a species which is phylogenetically not 'close' to
S. pombe, e.g. at a distance somewhere between S. pombe
and S. octosporus.
Also, if somebody can supply us with an
S. japonicus isolate (which is most distant to S. pombe
among Schizosacharomyces relatives, as I understand), we
would appreciate this a lot. ATCC does not seem to get
this strain revived any longer.
