Publications

Publications are a key way for young scientists to establish their potential to advance the field of biotechnology. In BTP, the collaborative environment and interdisciplinary approach aids students in publishing innovative research. Trainees graduate from their Ph.D. with a set of publications that serve as a key indicator of their success.

BTP Publication Citations and Associated PMC Links at PubMed / NCBI

As result of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy adopted in 2008, BTP publications in the above list which were published after early 2008 are freely available to any researcher or student. Look for the “Free PMC Article” link within the citation.

All publications resulting from research at BTP must acknowledge BTP in their publication and also must be deposited into the PMC. Compliance with the policy is a term and condition of all grants and cooperative agreements active in Fiscal Year 2008 or beyond, and for all contracts awarded after April 7, 2008.
