I am using a bioinformatics template with a user defined bioinfo.cls file.

This is the section where the "Reference" environment is defined.

And this is how they were initially adding the references.

I want to use BibTex instead by using the .bib files. I tried adding it in the file but the references don't show up.

  • The initially added refferences, are they in the tex file? – HATEthePLOT Feb 23 '16 at 9:19
  • No i commented them. – Alchemist Feb 23 '16 at 9:23
  • Can you provide the template and a MWE, so we can experiment with it? – HATEthePLOT Feb 23 '16 at 9:25
  • You have been asked yesterday already for the class file. You should not change it. – Johannes_B Feb 23 '16 at 9:42
  • I want to use BibTex instead by using the .bib files. This sentence contradicts itself. If you want to use BibTeX, you gotta use a database. Have you checked with the journal editors if you are allowed to use BibTeX? – Johannes_B Feb 23 '16 at 9:43
