I am the head of the Dahlquist Lab at Loyola Marymount University. I learned about OpenWetWare through a Google search when I was searching for a protocol online. I've joined because I run a lab with undergraduates at a primarily undergraduate institution and would like to post my protocols and supply lists online for easy access and to share them with the community.
