As scientists, we are constantly re-discovering knowledge that others have not had the time to publish and improving existing methods without the ability to share the improvements.
The mission of ZappyLab is to change this with the protocols.io repository. We are building a free, up-to-date, crowd-sourced protocol repository for the life sciences.
Build your cloud library and PubChase will recommend recently-published articles based on the authors and journals that you read. Save time and discover the articles most important to you and your own research.
Imagine you spend 3 months instead of a week to do a simple DNA transformation in a new species.
After much frustration and many cups of coffee later, you discover that you need to do it at room temperature instead of the 42-degree water bath. This is a tiny but critical detail in a common technique. Unfortunately, there is no effective way to let others working with this species know about your discovery. We started ZappyLab to create a free, central, up-to-date, crowd-sourced protocol repository.
