Aims & Scope
Bio-101 is intended to become a comprehensive database of life-science protocols. The protocols we wish to provide include experimentally validated protocols that have existed for some time in the research community. Protocols for novel and recently developed techniques can be found in our sister journal, Bio-protocol ( Because Bio-101 focuses mainly on protocols that have existed in the field for some time, the database uses a community-driven review process. Readers can provide comments and suggestions on protocol steps, which are then rated by authors and other readers. Highly rated comments later become incorporated into the main protocol. Bio-101 thus serves as a “universal protocol book”, with high-quality, step-by-step procedures that match standard practices in the life sciences.
