Protocols are constantly changing within labs. When searching for protocols it is easy to fall into information overload. How do you choose which protocols are right to suit your needs? If you do find protocols related to what you are trying to do…are any of them detailed enough for you to be able to replicate in your lab?
There are a variety of tools available on the internet to help address this problem. Dr. Mary Williams asked me to write this post for Plantae to provide an overview of some of the resources that are available to researchers and put together a guide to help scientists choose which resources might be useful for their work.
