Acknowledging the service
If you have used data produced by the University of Exeter Sequencing Service, you are obliged to acknowledge the facility and the appropriate grants that support us. Failure to do this could make us ineligible for future funding.
Acknowledgements (as instructed below) should be included in:
- Papers (including preprints)
- Conference Presentations
We also need to compile PDFs of these to report back to funding bodies on a yearly basis. Please also send a PDF copy to the sequencing service to assist us in compiling a yearly progress report.
