Define a new experiment

Here you can define and submit an experiment to the VWSL.

Why use a protocol?

The protocol is the detailed plan of a scientific experiment. It describes the design and implementation of the analysis. Protocols usually include detailed procedures and lists of required equipment and instruments, information on data, experimenting methods and standards for reporting the results.

The protocol is an essential part of a scientific experiment, as it guarantees quality assurance and good practice. The protocol is at the core of repeatability and reproducibility of results. Without a detailed protocol, the experiment cannot be repeated.
