Methods and Protocols Digest is a collection of links to the methodological articles, freely available online. Here you can also share your lab protocol with community!

I’m was thinking about optimal format of Methods and Protocols series. Maybe better to pick few protocols per week and link to it from Cells Weekly? Please let me know what do you think the best format for it would be in 2015. I need your feedback!
