Information for Users

Please Cite Bioresource Information in Your Publication

Please cite the name of the BRC bioresource and resource number in your publication

Information increases the value of bioresources and promotes further usage. In your publication of research results using bioresources from RIKEN BRC, please write the correct bioresource name and number. Your publication adds the value to the bioresource and promotes further use. The bioresource information in your publication is helpful and necessary for other researchers to obtain the same bioresource used in your publication. We will link your publication to the bioresource in our web catalog and database. As a result, your research achievement will be widely recognized and appreciated by fellow researchers and will eventually contribute significantly to advancement of life science.

The RIKEN BRC resource number is an internationally recognized unique ID and is required for accurate dissemination of information.

Please describe precisely the bioresources used for your experiment in “Materials and Methods” in your publication.

Example is as follows: xxxx (name of resource and resource number) was provided by the RIKEN BRC through the National BioResource Project of the MEXT/AMED, Japan.
