Hi! I'm AFriedman, the avatar and pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist from New York, USA. I'm very active on the English Wikiversity. Currently I'm using my Wikiversity Userpage to experiment with the idea of making academic-type research more open-access. I'm especially interested in developing Internet resources for researchers at the student and amateur level. Here is a page about some of the existing resources.


I am a proud alumna of Stuyvesant High School (here is the school's website).



My research program currently has two main components: using the program HMMER to study the evolution of G-protein coupled receptors in sequenced animal genomes, and comparing the evolution of the nervous system by studying cell type evolution and homology.
