Moved Lab to Georgia Southwestern State U!

Setting up new lab here; beginning to recruit undergraduate student researchers. Some B. glabrata have come along; planning to register with the BEI/BRI snail source to get a fresh shipment soon.

Thanks to all for the generous support! The contributions made so far will go a long way toward funding the true cost of startup efforts.
