CiteAb is an ever-growing repository of antibody and citation data and given the amount of information added every week you’d be forgiven for not noticing every new ounce of knowledge that makes its way on to the system.

For that reason we provide the table below to give users a snap shot of some of CiteAb’s inner workings at key stages of development.
