Future-Proofing Your Microbiology Resource Announcements Genome Assembly for Reproducibility and Clarity

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Sep 5;8(36):e00954-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00954-19.


Descriptions of resources, like the genome assemblies reported in Microbiology Resource Announcements, are often frozen at their time of publication, yet they will need to be interpreted in the midst of continually evolving technologies. It is therefore important to ensure that researchers accessing published resources have access to all of the information required to repeat, interpret, and extend these original analyses. Here, we provide a set of suggestions to help make certain that published resources remain useful and repeatable for the foreseeable future.
