New Features For Scientist Solutions

What would you like to see on our site that isn't here now? What do you spend hours digging for on the internet that is hard to find? Thank you in advance for your feedback.

I would appreciate if u can

I would appreciate if u can add some links which provides free research articles online, or some database like this. students like me really find this difficult to find reprint of some costly journals on internet.Other very good thing would be database of protocols of ur own under scientistsolutions tag.that can have different subheading like biocehmistry, immunology or molecular biology.

Yeah! A database of protocols can be a very good thing.
There are several options:
1. collect link to protocol resources around the web (I'm willing to help collecting such web sites and compiling a categorized list of links).
2. Ask Scientist solutions members to post their own protocols in a special forum in each category
3. creat a database of often used protocols (e.g. Western/Northern/Southern blotting, PCRs, commonly used cell lines and how to grow them, ELISA etc...). And members can add protocols for specific uses (e.g. how to separate nucleus from cytoplasm in S. cereviciae).

The third options looks to me to be the best solution.

There's already a very good selection of links to protocol sites in this thread. Maybe that thread could just be made 'sticky' or a link put onto the home page.

Yes, I know, I contributed to

Yes, I know, I contributed to it.
But i don't think it's good enough. You'll have to browse through the link to look for what you need, and might end up finding nothing.
But you gave me an idea which might simplify things, but will give a better data base:
put a sticky message at each forum, so people can reply to it an add their protocols and/or links to web pages with relevant protocols (for example: the Apoptosis forum will have apoptosis protocols, yeast forum will have yeast protocols etc...)
That way, if someone is ooking for apoptosis-related protocols, he can find them fast and easy.
