What is a Recipe?

This recipe explains how to write a recipe.

A recipe is a short description of how to achieve some goal in the lab. Ideally, a recipe is focused on a single task. Since technical documentation is quickly outdated, a recipe should be as general as possible and link to other resources when they exist.

How to Write A Recipe

Here are some rules for recipes:

  • Start with a summary that briefly explains what the recipe is for.
  • Use tags, and keep all tags lowercase.
  • Write the recipe in markdown syntax.

Adding Images

To add an image, upload it first with the Add Media button:


You can then include it in the post. (Even if you use Markdown syntax, you can use the html image tags provided by the WordPress editor.)
