Farhan Ahmad (an artistic interpretation)

I work in the Your Lab at XYZ University. I learned about OpenWetWare from Through a friend in MIT , and I've joined because I was reading somewhere that there are curretly 30K users and i wish to learn more from their experiences specially in protocols, blogs etc.
