A couple small changes to seaphages.org

Navigation Menus

Just a quick alert that sometime in the next couple of weeks, we'll be slightly changing the menus that appear at the top of seaphages.org. The current menus were just sort of tacked-together as we built the site, and so hopefully the rearrangement will be a bit more intuitive, but feedback ...
