Thanks PeerJ and all the co-authors for their great work.  I love open science and I particularly think we need continuing experiments on the best ways to do open science.  Thus I like the experiment that is PeerJ in regard to how to publish and how to pay for open access fees.

Full disclosure: I am an Academic Editor at PeerJ.

And two more coming. So proud of the undergrads in my lab who did this work and David Coil for coordinating it with help from Jenna Lang and Aaron Darling.  Undergrads at UC Davis sequencing genomes of organisms they isolated. So cool.
