Chemistry & Biochemistry: Protocols and Methods

Information resources for chemistry and biochemistry researchers and students.

Protocols are detailed, reproducible procedures for laboratory techniques and methods, mostly in the biomedical/life sciences, including biochemistry. Protocols include materials, step-by-step instructions, and safety considerations, and they are peer-reviewed and written so others can follow to replicate the experiment. Below is a list of the main resources for locating protocols in biochemistry. Most of these are indexed in PubMed and Embase; some are also indexed in Web of Science, BIOSIS Citation Index, and/or SciFinder.

Searching for Protocols

Along with searching these individually, you can also search PubMed and the other article databases by including works like protocol, method, and/or technique in your search, which will may also retrieve relevant articles outside these collections.

To locate protocols in Roger, include laboratory manuals in your search (green fluorescent protein* laboratory manual*)
