STARR manuscripts and peer-reviewed publications

Note that some of our work is published as open access arxiv manuscripts. The arxiv allows for open (and free) access to end users, is version controlled, provides a DOI and allows us to focus on the resource description.  Please work with your publishing agency so our resource descriptions can be included in a suitable manner. NIH provides guidelines on how to include citation of pre-prints (link).
