Each of these modular, animated, narrated eLearning courses were developed to provide a succinct, contextual summary of common laboratory techniques and methods used by researchers with an interest in protein and cell analysis workflows. At the end of each course, take an opportunity to apply the theory that was provided by completing the associated practical application exercises. We then invite you to download the eLearning certificate of completion for each course that you master.

If you have already registered for the Protein and Cell Analysis Education platform, you simply need to click on the “Start the course” link for the course you are interested in and log in with your credentials.

If you have not registered for the Protein and Cell Analysis Education platform or are not a LabRoots member already, you will need to first sign up by clicking the SIGN UP button. Once you have completed that form, you can click on the “Start the course” link and sign in.
