The Kubiak Lab Manual

The 2007 edition of the Kubiak lab manual was derived from the 1995 edition. The 1995 edition can be found here. This edition was originally edited in Microsoft Word 2003, the files were then converted into HTML/PHP using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004. The Kubiak Lab Manual is currently undergoing revision so that it fully reflects the research and facilities of the lab.
