The Genomics core has processed a lot of samples, generating data for many of the publications coming out of the Cambridge Institute, we've really enjoyed being part of this work and seeing the final results in such high-impact journals. If you use data from the Genomics Core is your publication and we're not coauthors, please don't forget to acknowledge us.

Acknowledging our contribution:

Please do remember us when writing your own manuscript, as authorship and acknowledgment are metrics that our success is measured by; so if we've contributed to the experimental design, produced experimental data, and/or helped with analysis or interpretation or writing the manuscript then please don't forget us. If the work carried out has been exceptional or the person doing it has done significantly more than would normally be expected you might consider naming that person in the acknowledgment or adding that individual as an author on the paper. It's up to you to decide authorship and/or acknowledgment.

Suggested acknowledgment text: We thank the Cambridge Institute Genomics Core for their support with this work or We thank the Cambridge Institute Genomics Core for their support with this work, especially James Hadfield for his work on the RNA-seq library preparation (if someone in particular played a role not quite enough for authorship).

Please send us a copy of your paper, or e-mail us a PubMed link and we'll add it to the work below. Who know's we might even blog or Tweet about it!
