Why cite MaizeGDB?

One of the ways we are able to demonstrate that MaizeGDB is a useful resource is by tracking references to MaizeGDB in the literature. If you wish to make reference to the project, placing a link within the paper (e.g., is not enough! Although we appreciate the inclusion of any reference to MaizeGDB in your publications, we cannot track these sorts of references. Instead, please use the following as a guide to citing MaizeGDB within your publications.

If you are seeking a general reference for MaizeGDB, we suggest one of the following:

In accordance with the Columbia Guide to Online Style (Columbia University Press) the basic format for citing electronic publications is:

Author's Last Name, First Initials. (Date) Title of Work. Title of Complete Work. [protocol and address] [path] (date of message or visit).
