About Us
Bio-101 is a Bio-protocol’s sister database for life science protocols. Its mission is to make life science research more efficient and reproducible by building an open platform for life scientists to share, find and discuss research protocols.  
Bio-101 protocols have been edited, in addition to a community-driven post-publication review process. Post publication comments and suggestions on protocol steps are 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.

Our vision – improving reproducibility

Sharing detailed methods and fostering direct communication among scientists will improve reproducibility and greatly accelerate discoveries in life science research.

Who we are - passionate early-career researchers

Bio-101's editorial board is primarily postdocs and junior faculty members. As early-career life-science researchers, who actively and routinely design, conduct and supervise experiments, we have the broad expertise to ensure the quality and clarity of the published protocols.

Where we are going - revolutionizing the way researchers communicate

Bio-101 is not just "another" protocol database. We hope that our protocols will serve as the anchor points for our authors and users to form vibrant micro-networks from which everyone involved will benefit. Our ultimate goal is to help drastically improve reproducibility and accelerate the research process.
