Finally! The lab is getting a decent website (Jon says, as though its anyone else's fault). For now, we've got an up-to-date publications page, and current grad students listed under 'people,' because, well, that's what they are. People will get populated soon with post-docs, undergrads, and rumor has it, even PIs. And then lot's more to follow, so check back soon.
