"Researchers have traveled to Cold Spring Harbor for decades to learn innovative laboratory techniques and share their own discoveries," said Dr. James D. Watson, Chancellor of the Laboratory. "Now they can do the same online and expect to benefit from the same high level of technical expertise and innovation."
Dr. John Inglis, Executive Director of the Press, described CSH Protocols as "a unique site that combines the best methods from our hands-on courses and manuals with instruction in newly emerging techniques." Inglis added, "As a not-for-profit science publisher committed to research and education, we can offer scientists an authoritative site uniquely tailored to their needs a place where they can search for and store valuable information, annotate it, share it with colleagues, and contribute improvements and updates for the benefit of the entire scientific community."
Dr. Michael Ronemus, previously a senior postdoctoral fellow at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and a former Associate Editor of Nature Genetics, is the Executive Editor of CSH Protocols. "Technology development is the lifeblood of experimental science," said Ronemus, "and as a division of a very active research center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press has the inside knowledge, the resources, and the technological sophistication to create a carefully edited and structured database with state-of-the-art online features not found elsewhere."
At launch, CSH Protocols will feature protocols in cell and molecular biology, genetics, protein science, imaging, and
