Proposed Abbreviations for major Rosaceae species

Proposed Abbreviations for major Rosaceae species
 
We recommend that authors do not include a species prefix in the gene symbol when submitting the gene data to NCBI, GDR or any other databases, so as to minimize the creation of duplicated names due to the species prefix. Authors are recommended, however, to use species prefix in publications for comparisons between genes of different species origin.
 
The species prefix in the table below are recommended for authors to use in publications for comparisons between genes of different species origin. For all other taxonomic species within Rosaceae, it is recommended that authors take a UNIPROT approach of using 5 letter abbreviations; 3 for the genus name and 2 for the species. The species prefix, along with the gene naming guideline, has been put together by Rosaceae Gene Name Standardization Subcommittee of RosEXEC/RosIGI
