Lab manual


The lab manual outlines our principles, expectations, guidelines, on-boarding process, and general information about how we operate as a research team. This document is designed to be a reference for lab members and collaborators. It’s also part of an induction process when people join the lab.

The manual is a living document. Lab members are encouraged to submit fixes and improvements to it. See the Contributing Guide for this website to find out how.

Important: The first thing you should do is familiarize yourself with the lab Code of Conduct, which applies to lab members and collaborators, both within and without the lab.


This manual is based on the excellent Lab Carpentry blueprints, with material adapted from the Data Intensive Biology Lab and the Data Exploration Lab. The manual contents are available under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license.
