My question is a less technical one, but I was not sure where to seek advice. I am currently working on a paper regarding variants called from DNA-seq, but the reference genome that was used for calling variants hasn't been published yet (I mean the whole pipeline for assembling scaffolds and annotating them). How should it be approached in the paper?
Forum: How to acknowledge in the paper a reference genome that hasn't been published yet?

I see three options:
- Put the reference genome in GenBank, get an accession number and refer it in your paper. Provide correct attribution to those who did the work and put it together and say that method/analysis of the genome will be published independently.
- Wait until collaborators are ready to publish their paper/assembly and send both papers in at the same time. If you are not submitting to the same journal as they are, then you may need to include a copy of their manuscript with yours (to convince your reviewers that genome you used is legit/reasonably put together).
- Find a journal that does not require submission of reference sequence (there are some industrial biotech journals that don't require this since industrial strains may be patented etc, last I knew about this from several years back) and try your luck there (if your analysis fits in the scope of such journals, of course).
