This question already has an answer here:
I am using Biblatex for my dissertation bibliography. The journal format I am using requires that et al, but in italic and have a period at the end.
What I have:
Beadle et al.,
What I want:
Beadle et al.
Also, when only two authors are present, the citation need to be like this:
(Beadle and Tautum 1949)
But what I have right now is
(Beadle and Tautum, 1949) (notice the comma)
I looked at the biblatex manual, but could not figure out how to go about this. Also, search on stackexchange hasn't turned up anything useful either. Thanks.
