Lab Protocols

Curated Collections

PLOS ONE is committed to pushing the boundaries of Open Science by improving the reproducibility and transparency of scientific research. Earlier this year we launched Lab Protocols in collaboration with protocols.io. Lab Protocols offer authors the opportunity to share their peer reviewed step-by-step protocols with the community whilst receiving credit for their contributions. In this collection, we are highlighting the first set of Lab Protocols that PLOS ONE has published from across our broad scope, from molecular biology, biotechnology, structural biology to archaeology.

PLOS ONE will consider new submissions for this collection until 28 February 2022. Submit!
