Publications using Biopython

There is a separate shorter listing of Biopython papers you may wish to cite.

This is a list of papers citing, referencing or using Biopython, by year sorted alphabetically by author. In many cases these citations are just via the website, which is now discouraged with the publication of the Biopython application note (Cock et al., 2009). Regrettably, in some cases the manuscripts themselves do not directly mention Biopython, but this has been confirmed explicitly by an author.

Publications from 2010 onwards

We don’t plan to compile a listing manually, since most publications should be citing our application note Cock et al., 2009 explicitly (and/or one of the module specific papers).
