We are trying to keep the barrier to access for scientists as low as possible. Feel free to request an account regardless of whether you are an individual, a student group, a lab or some other type of organization. Just having an interest in biological science or biological engineering is sufficient to join OpenWetWare. If you are interested in setting up a lab website, please state that and we can help you further.

Each application is read and evaluated by real people. In order to expedite getting an account, please give us as much information as possible. If you do not provide your full name and academic affiliation, we will ask you to provide more information. Also, a detailed reason for why you would like to join will help, especially if you are not academically affiliated.

Please note that user accounts are for individuals only and are not meant to be shared by a group.

If you have any questions, please email us at admin AT openwetware DOT org.
