  • Nice collection of videos; many blog channels
  • Nothing significant

How to describe this site? Well I think the opening page says it all: “Think of us as one of your labmates—except, we don’t fall asleep in group meetings…” (Yes, we’ve all been there.) Benchfly is a multifaceted resource for scientists, although the primary component of the site consists of video tutorials. Whether you want to know how to pack a capillary column,  clean a rotovap, or smear parasites for counting, you could spend a great deal of time learning new lab tricks from the videos on this site. There are also a number of articles and blogs to consume your time. So, the next time you find yourself in the lab waiting for your gel to finish running or counting down the time between washes, flit over to Benchfly and enjoy.
