Q. We would like to use DToL data in our publication. Is that ok and what do we need to cite?

  • A. Yes. All our assemblies and data are being generated for the public to make best use of them, no restrictions. We are releasing genome notes for all assembled species ( or access via the portal at ), please cite these. If there is no genome note released yet, please cite the INSDC accession of the assembly used and acknowledge the Darwin Tree of Life Project. Where applicable please also cite the sample accessions of any project data used and the umbrella accession for the project (INSERT). This greatly assists us with understanding the impact of the data.
