How to cite the use of GABI-Kat lines?


We request that you cite the paper by Kleinboelting et al. (NAR 2012, database issue) when you use one or several GABI-Kat lines for your work, and that you mention the line ID(s) in material and methods (e.g. GK_048E04). If you got the line(s) from NASC, please mention NASC in addition to GABI-Kat (please cite Kleinboelting et al. (2012) also in this case) according to their request and include the NASC stock ID in material and methods.


For GABI-Kat topics other than using our lines please refer to the respective papers listed below.
