General Info Updates

Visit the Project Site on Trunk

We have created a project site on Trunk, Tufts’ online collaboration and learning environment. This will enable sharing of work and data in a closed environment but eventual sharing with a larger audience when it comes time to publish work and findings. It also has more features such as a calendar and user forum.

All participants should have access to this site:

Discussions are underway now, so please visit the site and join in the introductions.
