ScienceWikis is a catalog of biological knowledge wikis and wiki extensions, aiming to exploit the full potential of wiki technology to harness community intelligence in knowledge integration and curation.

Purpose & Aims[edit]

  • Build professional academic wikis for biological knowledge integration and curation (such as, wiki-based gene annotation system).
  • Measure users' contributions, give explicit authorship and provide a standard practice to reward community-curated efforts in bio-wikis.
  • Provide a central archive of quantitative contributions and citations in different bio-wikis.
  • Develop wiki extensions to facilitate biological content creation and editing, data visualization, exchange and sharing.

Funding[edit]

ScienceWikis is developed and maintained by the Zhang Lab at Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
