General Structure

The format of the IEEE reference style differs significantly from CBE format. The most significant differences are found in the following areas.

Citations in Text

The oncogene jun has presently become one of the best-known oncogenes because of its ability to act as a transcription factor [1]. One study [2] examined the mRNA levels of jun C, jun B and jun D in various mouse tissues and concluded that each of these genes is expressed independently in different tissues and that they may play a role in growth, development and cellular differentiation.

The results presented in this report show that mammary tissues from mice, rats, and humans, contain constitutive levels of jun B transcripts. This is not surprising since in a previous survey that did not include mammary tissue, jun B was found to be present in a variety of mouse tissues [2].
