Cite Progenetix

For any use of theProgenetix data, e.g. as a reference for aberration frequencies in a certain locus, it is necessary to cite both the website and the original Bioinformatics publication:
  • Baudis, M., & Cleary, M. L. (2001). Progenetix.net: an online repository for molecular cytogenetic aberration data. Bioinformatics, 17(12), 1228-1229.
  • Progenetix oncogenomic online resource: www.progenetix.org. Baudis, M. (2001-2014)

There is now a publication describing the database's current status. This can be used in addition to or as replacement for the 2001 publication:
  • Cai, H., N. Kumar, N. Ai, S. Gupta, P. Rath, and M. Baudis. Progenetix: 12 years of oncogenomic data curation. 2014 Jan; 42 (Database issue)

In case of citation restrictions, you may just use the Bioinformatics citation, and put the website in the text. A proper citation would look e.g. like:
... according to the Progenetix resource ([1]; www.progenetix.org), copy number ...

... and in the citations:
  • Baudis, M., & Cleary, M. L. (2001). Progenetix.net: an online repository for molecular cytogenetic aberration data. Bioinformatics, 17(12), 1228-1229.

Cite arrayMap

For arrayMap data, the same rules apply: Citation of the article and the website:
  • Cai, H., Kumar, N., & Baudis, M. 2012. arrayMap: A Reference Resource for Genomic Copy Number Imbalances in Human Malignancies. PLoS One 7(5), e36944.
  • arrayMap: Genomic arrays for copy number profiling in human cancer (www.arraymap.org). Baudis, M. (2012-2014)
