the page number is incorrect (Laemmli, U.K. (1970)
Nature 227, 600 through 700). The most common
errors are inversions (680 to 608) or the replacement
of a number with one of similar shape (680 to 630) or
value (680 to 681). Note that the number of correct
citations (estimated at 2 x 105) exceeds the
capacity of the ISI database (216 = 65536 'cytes').

(#10 from Fig. 1A, occurrences 1-9 are identified
by research location and year). Inherited WCs are
generally transmitted between overlapping groups of
scientists within the same institution (boxes) or with
shared research interests (dashed lines). Lineages
are easily identified in articles that cite a previous paper
containing the WC (black lines), although this may involve a
missing link that does not contain the WC itself (e.g. 4 to 7).
