SpringerNature Experiments*

SpringerProtocols is the largest subscription-based online database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the biomedical and life sciences. Compiling protocols from the book series Methods in Molecular Biology and other sources, SpringerProtocols offers researchers access to nearly thirty years of tested, trusted, step-by-step protocols for immediate use in the lab.

Cold Spring Harbor Protocols*

An interactive source of research techniques. The database is fully searchable by keyword and subject. Its coverage includes cell and molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, protein science, and imaging. Protocols are presented step-by-step and are continuously expanded, updated, and annotated by the originators and users of the technique.
