To facilitate a more comprehensive analysis, we constructed a genome-scale epistasis map (E-MAP) for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, providing phenotypic signatures for ~60% of the nonessential genome. Using these signatures, we generated a catalog of 297 functional modules, and we assigned function to 144 previously uncharacterized genes, including mRNA splicing and DNA damage checkpoint factors. Comparison with an integrated genetic interactome from the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae revealed a hierarchical model for the evolution of genetic interactions, with conservation highest within protein complexes, lower within biological processes, and lowest between distinct biological processes. Despite the large evolutionary distance and extensive rewiring of individual interactions, both networks retain conserved features and display similar levels of functional crosstalk between biological processes, suggesting general design principles of genetic interactomes.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier Inc.||Keywords:||Genetic interactions;Epistatic interactions;Schizosaccharomyces pombe;Saccharomyces cerevisiae||DOI:||10.1016/j.molcel.2012.05.028||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
