We request co-authorship (and will assist with manuscript preparation) if we have developed novel tools, algorithms, or pipelines, participated in experiment design planning, or have contributed substantially to a biological question addressed in a manuscript (see ABRF’s Authorship Guidelines). We ask that, at minimum, you acknowledge us in a publication to which we have contributed routine analysis, data management or conversion, or data submission services.
