Why Not Publish Your Antibody Validation Data

Posted by on December 15th, 2014

Antibodies are frequently used in developmental biology labs, but their validation is crucial to provide the information needed in order to reliably interpret the results of experiments. Antibody validation is also important to help scientists chose antibodies that will be suitable for their experiments, yet the results of these validations rarely get published. To try[…]

Antibody reporting in developmental biology journals

Posted by on September 12th, 2013

We are trying to encourage scientists and journals to work together to improve reporting of antibody experiments which is often poor. See our comment article; We would really appreciate any information of which DB journals have existing antibody reporting guidelines (so we can credit them) and encourage editors of journals who do not have[…]

CiteAb: a search engine for antibodies

Posted by on March 14th, 2013

This week we’re launching CiteAb – a brand new antibody search engine suitable for Developmental Biologists working with model organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, Zebrafish, Xenopus and Chick, as well as mammals. We feature nearly 1 million antibodies, rated by citations. See for more details. This is a new site so we would very[…]
