Support SGD and your other community resources by citing them!

As a valued member of the genetics community, we know you’re no stranger to the vital role that community-driven databases, knowledgebases, and stock centers have played in advancing our understanding of model organisms—rats, worms, flies, maize, yeast, fungal species, and more.

We encourage you to keep using these resources—but most importantly, please take a moment to cite them in-text whenever you’ve used them in the development of a manuscript. This isn’t just good practice, it’s a powerful way to advocate for their importance, as well as helping to secure their funding for the future. Remember: including a link to the resource isn’t the same as citing it!
