%% Class nature
%% Written by Peter Czoschke, czoschke@mrl.uiuc.edu
%% v1.0 24 Feb. 2004
%%
%% A document class for Nature letters and articles that (should)
%% conform to the Nature preprint style as defined by their Word template.
%%
%% I created this class for personal purposes and without any connection
%% to the Nature Publishing Group. I in no way claim that documents generated
%% with this file fully comply with their current style requirements.
%% I disclaim any responsibility for the use of this file heretofore.
%%
%% ------------------------------------
%%
%% See the accompanying file nature-template.tex for an example.
%%
%% Use with naturemag.bst if using BibTeX.
%%
%% Nature wants things in the order:
%% title, text, methods, references, Supplementary Information line (if any),
%% acknowledgements, interest declaration, corresponding author line,
%% tables, figure legends
%%
%% This class provides the following non-standard features:
%%
%% 1 "affiliations" environment for listing the authors' institutions
%%
%% 2 "methods" environment for the Methods section
%%
%% 3 "addendum" environment for the Acknowledgements, etc. at the end
%%
%% In addition, the abstract, figure and table environments are redefined. See below.
