Core Facility Directors and Managers are SCIENTISTS.

Providing authorships for our personnel and acknowledging our Core Facilities is frequently deserved and can be critical to our survival!

Help OSU stay aware of our contributions to your research.

The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) has established a world-wide set of guidelines for this purpose. Please see the full details at:




Please use the following acknowledgements:


"We thank the OSU Microarray Core Facility which was supported by grants from NSF (EOS-0132534) and NIH (2P20RR016478-04, 1P20RR16478-02 and 5P20RR15564-03)."

At the very least PLEASE acknowledge the "Genomics and/or Proteomics Cores" in your publications, presentations and posters:

The complete acknowledgement can be pretty long, as we've been around for 17 years. If requested, you can add this verbiage to your acknowledgements:

"The OSU Genomics Core Facility (formerly the Bioinformatics and Microarray Core Facilities) is supported by the Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) (Grant Number 2 P20 RR016478-04) (July1, 2004 - June 30, 2009); COBRE Program of the National Institutes of Health National Center for Research Resources (Grant Number RR15564) (September 1, 2000 - June 30, 2004); With additional support from NSF- EPSCoR program of the National Science Foundation (Grant Number EPS-0132534) (February 1, 2002 - May 31, 2005), the Biomedical Resource Infrastructure Network (BRIN) award from the National Institutes of Health Institutional Development Award Program (Grant Number RR15564) (September 1, 2001 - June 30, 2004)"
