myExperiment is a collaborative environment where scientists can safely publish their workflows and experiment plans, share them with groups and find those of others. It allows workflows, other digital objects and bundles (called Packs) to be swapped, sorted and searched like photos and videos on the Web. myExperiment makes it easy for the next generation of scientists to contribute to a pool of scientific methods, build communities and form relationships - reducing time-to-experiment, sharing expertise and avoiding reinvention.
