Discovery - Protocols

Discovery Initiative protocols focus on identifying migration related genes and proteins, through genetic and expression strategies in genetically tractable organisms.

Not all the protocols presented here have been integrated into the Nature Protocols Network, in these cases link to the existing file or page are provided.

Software developed for analyzing data are described here.
