We propose an abstract model for scientific protocols, where several atomic operators are proposed for protocol composition. We distinguish two different layers associated with scientific protocols: design and implementation, and discuss the mapping between them. We illustrate our approach with a representative example and describe Proto colDB, a scientific protocol repository currently in development. Our approach benefits scientists by allowing the archiving of scientific protocols with the collected data sets to constitute a scientific portfolio for the laboratory to query, compare and revise protocols.
