*The Endy lab webpage ([http://web.mit.edu/endy http://web.mit.edu/endy]) points directly to the [[Endy | Endy lab page]] on OpenWetWare.  The primary advantage of this approach is that instead of a single member of the lab being responsible for maintaining the lab website, any member of the lab can easily edit and improve the site.  The navigation bar, such as the [[Template:EndyLab|one]] on the Endy research page, is useful for traversing through webpages within the site and gives some continuity to the lab pages.
