Google Custom Search for Open Notebook Science

There has been a discussion recently on Michael Nielsen's blog about using a Google Custom Search for Open Notebook Science. Starting with UsefulChem, ChemTools (Cameron Neylon), OpenWetWare and Gus Rosania's 1CellPK, I created a search:

More sites can be added by volunteers. It will only work for sites that are accessible by a simple url (without a login).

Give it a spin by searching "malaria" or "protein".

We've already been using the Google Custom search for UsefulChem and it really works well - see the search box at the top of the UC wiki main page. It is also useful for teaching - for example to aggregate high level content about organic chemistry.

It should be fairly straightforward to add this to the Science Search box you have on the blog. I'll take a look later...

Dave - yes it should be easy. Let me know if you have trouble.
