Trials: Nature Protocols; Cold Spring Harbor Protocols

We have trials running until the end of March, 2007, for two new, important sets of peer-reviewed protocols, one from the Nature Publishing Group and the other from Cold Spring Harbor Press. Both sets of protocols cover a wide range of fields within molecular and cell biology, from bioinformatics and computational biology to basic microscopy and electrophoresis.

We do not yet have pricing information for them.

Please give them a side by side test drive, and send me your impressions and critiques. If we are only able to afford to purchase a subscription to one of these, which would you recommend? Please send comments to: florador@uiuc.edu
