Welcome to ScienceWikis
Contribute your efforts, further our knowledge.

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

  • 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.

Biological Wikis

A catalog of biological databases

A knowledgebase of Internal Control Genes for RT-qPCR normalization

A wiki-based database for community curation of human long non-coding RNAs

A community-curated knowledgebase for the rice research community

A portal for a unified view of the human transcriptome

A wiki-based English-to-Chinese Scientific Nomenclature Dictionary

Wiki extensions

Wiki extensions to facilitate biological content creation and editing, data visualization, exchange and sharing through a variety of e-utility methods.
