Research web sites linked from the the Research Biology Web should be content-driven. That is, rather than creating the "Willott Lab Home page," Dr. Willott created "The Mosquito Atlas" which is about the research going on in her lab.
Sites should try to follow the basic principles of good design. (see the Yale Web Style Guide for an academic approach to web design). Each page in the Research site should identify the site at the top and have the following information in the footer:
- URL of research site
- small copyright statement
- the email address of the person responsible for the page
- the date last modified
All work should be properly credited. Sites should contain no copyright infringements.
