Benchfly- Molecular Biology Protocols and More

I first mentioned on this site in August 2009 and I feel like this rich and well-designed site is worthy of another mention.

Benchfly provides time saving tips, video protocols, reviews, and a wealth of tools for anyone working in a molecular biology lab or teaching a biotechnology course. The video protocols are short and to the point- see Streaking Bacteria for a Single Colony embedded below:

Vodpod videos no longer available.
One of my favorite parts of Benchfly is the sense of fun and engagement you get from the site. You can tell that the designers/contributors truly love what they do- a real-life example of the Nature of Science. See Benchlife- Beyond Experiments for some great cooking tips, etc.
You can also follow Benchfly on Twitter 🙂
