Scholarly Communications


Writing a paper? Acknowledging the correct institution is just as important as identifying your funders. Often, this is the furthest thing from your mind when writing a paper, but giving correct affiliation will help people associate your significant efforts with the UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute -- for as long as your publication can be found on the internet. So please identify yourself as being from "UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA."
