Here is a website that definitely knows how to catch the attention of scientists—on the homepage, in big letters, reads the phrase “do more science”. This site offers great organizational tools to the bench scientist, including a calendar on which to plan one’s experiments and a detailed “add an experiment” option. When experiments are added, the user can provide a description, write a protocol (complete with in-page timers), and add milestones to track one’s progress. The website also provides ways to organize and catalog one’s specimens, molecular reagents, miscellaneous materials, and storage boxes. All of these resources are free when an individual creates an account. (Of course, the system is built to integrate across lab members, so as to provide a central repository for reagents, etc. However, this option will cost you.) The website now has an accompanying iPad app, making it even more convenient for note-taking at the bench.
