Review of Molecular Biology Techniques Forum
Title: Molecular Biology Techniques Forum
Description:This web site provides an easy access to the protocols that are
used in molecular biology. A good feature of this site is that it
has a forum where you can ask a question or discuss about any
technical difficulty. People respond to your queries quickly and
the suggestions are very useful. You can also contribute by
submitting some interesting techniques/ articles.
Strengths:The protocols are stated in a very clear, lucid, step by step and
straightforward manner, which can be used by even a beginner.
Readers dont need to spend time in reading too much. It has
links to almost all the useful bio-informatics programs which
respond quite fast. It has also links with almost all the most widely used journals. Excellent links to some other web sites regarding the molecular biology and related protocols, as well as to all the major biotech companies so that if we need a kit or an
equipment, it can be searched directly in the search engine and
it gives all the companies that have the equipment, and hence
we dont have to look in the individual companies. It also has its
