Sigma-Aldrich to Provide Complementary Protocols From Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press

NEW YORK, March 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Sigma-Aldrich will provide complementary protocols from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, the company said today.

The agreement will enable researchers to freely access a new set of protocols each month through the Featured Protocols section of BioSupplyNet.com, the online directory of laboratory supplies used by researchers worldwide.

"Given the diversity of research tools needed to explore genomic and proteomic applications, we recognize the need for easily accessed protocols," Diane Gaige, eMarketing manager at Sigma-Aldrich, said in a statement.

The company said it will "extend [the resource] further by creating an easy-to-use materials list for each protocol."
