Xenopus gene nomenclature

Working guidelines for naming transgenic constructs, and transgenic and mutant Xenopus lines

Standard nomenclature is critical to make your research accessible to the broad scientific community and to ensure reproducibility, consistency and provenance. These working nomenclature guidelines were developed in consultation with the Xenopus stock centers, the NXR, NBRP, and EXRC, following best practices used by all other model organisms. Brevity and clarity are strongly encouraged when naming the transgenic construct and its subsequent Xenopus lines. Transient lines, i.e., those that are not maintained or supplied, do not need these formal names.
