Made a project page (hack?) for microBEnet on ImpactStory

So – was playing around with Impact Story – a site where one can get the “total impact” in terms of Alt Metrics for one’s work. And I decided to hack the system a little bit and instead of making a page for me I made one for the microBEnet project. I have not populated it with everything associated with the project – more just playing around.  But it seems to me that ImpactStory would be a great way to track projects and programs not just people …

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. My lab is in the UC Davis Genome Center and I hold appointments in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine and the Department of Evolution and Ecology in the College of Biological Sciences. My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis (see my lab site here which has more information on lab activities).  In addition to research, I am heavily involved in the Open Access publishing and Open Science movements.
