Getting started: How to Register and Login

This tutorial is designed to take you through the registration process and how to login and logout.

Why register

You need to be a registered user to be able to contribute. Uploading your protocols, posting comments and editing wiki pages are rights reserved for registered users to allow for the tracking of who is doing what, and to ensure the integrity of the system.
