icons for protocols

Difficult step.png icon could be added to protocols to highlight difficult steps

Critical step.png warn about critical steps; these may not be difficult but are crucial for the experiment, e.g. a heat incubation that has to be exactly x min but not longer;

Time required.png help people plan how long steps will take; Torsten pointed out correctly here that it is not always clear to which part of the protocol "time required" refers; a section may be the natrual unit here

Pause point.png where protocol can be interrupted

Optional step.png steps that can be omitted or included

other possible icons:

  • alternative
  • total time required
  • difficulty rating (e.g. 1-5 gloves)


  • Bill suggested icons without text or text that appears on mouse-over
