University of Michigan iGEM Software Team Protocol Database Project 2014

The Michigan iGEM Software Team is creating a protocol database and rating system to help eliminate reproducibility issues in laboratory science experiments. Review studies estimate up to only 10-25% of published scientific results are reproducible, and up to 54% of materials/antibodies/organisms are not identifiable for reproducibility studies (https://peerj.com/articles/148/_). We are hoping to address some of these issues by providing a tool that allows researchers to upload protocols and share specific reagents (product numbers and so on) to increase the likelihood of reproducible scientific results and protocols.

We'd love feedback from any software or laboratory team, individual or scientist on if and how such a tool could be most useful to potential users. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
