Questions relating to protocols, procedures, and good practice when using laboratory equipment.

When asking questions on lab techniques, the following should be considered:

  • A clear outline of the experimental problem should be presented.
  • Standard names and units should be used for reagents and physical quantities.
  • If question is asking for troubleshooting, the current protocol employed should be explained stepwise.
  • The technique should be clearly important and specific to biology.
