Citing the cDNA project

The Dictyostelium cDNA project has been initiated in 1996 at the University of Tsukaba in Japan.

HAPPY Mapping

HAPPY mapping of the Dictyostelium genome is done at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge.

GenBank Sequences

  • If GenBank sequence entries are to be cited, the citation should include the sequence name and GenBank accession number. For example: The GenBank accession number for the sequence reported in this paper is U12980.
    The GenBank accession number for the full genome sequence is AAFI00000000.
