After a fantastic SICB symposium on marine larval genomics, I'm happy to share a publication focused on how to improve our genome publications. Working on marine systems, we know that non-model organisms present challenges that require innovation to overcome. The more detail we include in our work, the better we aid our community of scientists to move forward. The checklist is designed to ensure that each stage of a genome project is documented thoroughly, from the animal collection to the final data availability. Formatted as a fillable PDF, the goal is to help researchers produce publications with the most complete methods sections possible, and to help reviewers to be thorough when reading manuscripts that may be on organisms they are unfamiliar with. Here's hoping that this becomes a useful resource!
