Dictyostelium Reference Library

Dictyostelium Reference Library


Current version = Dicty20

Dicty20 and the Dicty Update Jan. 7, 2015 were released on January 8, 2015.

Until November 2009, the Franke Dictyostelium Reference Library had been compiled by Jakob Franke. Up to that date it included all published references relating to Dictyostelium and related species using databases such as Pubmed, Agricola, ISI Web of Knowledge, ProQuest digital dissertations, and the USA patent database.

The Dicty20 update is the second Dictyostelium Reference Library release by dictyBase and succeeds Dicty19 of February 2012. This update adds 488 references for Dictyostelium and other Dictyostelia from PubMed for a total of 10,384 references. The update does not include references that are not indexed in PubMed such as thesis, magazine articles or patents. However, we invite you to send us any references that are not included or missing, preferably in EndNote or text format.
