The UWBC provides access to complex genomic technologies and offers guidance in experimental design. One measure of our impact on the UW-Madison research community is the number of publications we support. Thus, we request that any data generated using UWBC resources, which are presented in a publication, grant proposal, poster, or presentation, be formally acknowledged. Payment for UWBC services does not preclude the recognition of resources used or intellectual contribution to a project.


Many journals request authors to list a unique Research Resource Identifier (RRID) for all or specific research components in their papers, including CellPress and Nature Protocols. The SciCrunch portal is a central location for finding RRIDs for reagents, tools, materials, and core facilities.

The UWBC Gene Expression Core Facility RRID # is SCR_017757. Example sentence: This work was completed in part with resources provided by the University of Wisconsin Biotechnology Center- Gene Expression Center (RRID: SCR_017757).

The following is an incomplete list of publications acknowledging GEC support. If you see your publication(s) missing from this list, please notify us at  Thank you.
