When Kirell Lakhman came on board as the editor of GenomeWeb.com last summer, the visitors to our site were logging about 675,000 page views per month. Thanks to the prolific and high-quality reporting of the K-team — Kirell with reporters Kat McGowan and Ken Howard — GenomeWeb celebrated a new milestone in March: 1 million page views.
