Full statement: "All work that is supported in some way by the Protein Production Facility should be acknowledged in all publications that arise. For routine technical assistance we ask you to add "We are grateful to the University of Leeds Protein Production Facility, funded by the University of Leeds and Royal Society Wolfson Laboratory Refurbishment Grant" to your Acknowledgements section. In the majority of cases we will have input in your project beyond routine. For work where we have had intellectual input into the project design, acquired and/or interpreted data beyond routine practices or written portions of manuscripts, normal co-authorship guidelines should apply and each member of the Protein Production Facility that has contributed significantly should be included as a co-author."

If you publish work that has utilised the PPF please let us know so that we can add your reference to our publication list.
