I work in the Integrated Imaging Center at Johns Hopkins University. I learned about OpenWetWare from Federick Tan in Blake Hill's group at JHU, and I've joined because I would like to try using a wiki for basic documentation of our imaging center's facilities. Hopefully it will encourage users to share tips, tricks and refinements of protocols.
