The Protocol Activity Modeling Language (PAML)

What is PAML?

PAML is an open specification for laboratory protocols, that solves common interchange problems stemming from variations in scale, labware, instruments, and automation. PAML was built from the ground-up to support protocol interchange. It provides an extensible library of protocol primitives that capture the control and data flow needed for simple calibration and culturing protocols to industrial control.

Software Ecosystem

PAML’s rich representation underpins an ecosystem of several powerful software tools, including:
