Acknowledging the MIC

All users of the facility should cite the CRL MIC in the Acknowledgement section of your paper. You can site us using our RRID:SCR_017852! The NIH requires acknowledgement of shared instrumentation grants in published papers. Your acknowledgement will help ensure continued support of this facility, as well as help ensure future shared instrumentation grants for all of UC Berkeley!

When staff has helped beyond basic training and provided valuable advice, protocols, input, etc., it is appropriate to discuss authorship.
