The laboratory of Prof. Bergelson at the University of Chicago investigates the interaction of plants and microbes. The group requires a website that presents scientific information to lay people, prospective students and other researchers. Foremost, the site needs to be easy to maintain for many authors.
I set up a customized WordPress site that integrates with a bibliographic management tool. The lab manager keeps track of articles of all group members in a publication manager. A dedicated WordPress plugin pulls information automatically from that database and displays them neatly formatted on the site. I trained group members and provided documentation that helps them to publish pages about their scientific studies.
