WikiProject Computational Biology is aimed at improving and organising articles on computational biology, bioinformatics, systems biology and related topics. More broadly, the WikiProject aims to increase participation of computational biology researchers in English Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, as well as cultivate Wikipedia-related initiatives with academic publishers and learned societies.

Goals[edit]

The overall goal of the project is to improve the article quality of Wikipedia articles within the scope. The WikiProject will assist this goal by:

  1. Identifying specific areas for improvement within existing articles
  2. Identifying missing topics
  3. Expand and improve entry pages, such as Computational biology
  4. Provide a systematic structure of concepts within computational biology, using categories, templates and navigation-boxes.
  5. Organising articles to provide up-to-date coverage of relevant topics
  6. Potentially implement other quality control mechanisms (e.g. scientific peer review)

Scope[edit]

Topics of interest are:

If there is sufficient interest, there is room for creating task forces that specifically deal with particular areas within computational biology.

Tasks[edit]

Below is a To-Do list of tasks for the WikiProject, if you complete a task or have identified issues the WikiProject can help with, you can edit the below template here.

Articles relating to this WikiProject need to be identified. Please add the WikiProject Computational Biology template to relevant articles.


Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Categories[edit]

The WikiProject aims to implement meaningful and useful categorisation of articles within the scope of WikiProject Computation Biology. Here are some current categories of interest, feel free to edit this list:

ISCB article competition[edit]

WikiProject members organise an annual Wikipedia article competition in association with the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).

The competition, running since 2012, awards students and trainees for the best contributions to computational biology-related articles. Entry is open internationally, to students and trainees of any level. We particularly encourage lecturers or course organisers to use this competition as a class assignment.

The current status of the competition is:

Year Notice Entries Status
2012 1 1 Completed
2013 2 2 Completed
2014 3 3 Open

Queries specific to the competition can be addressed to Alex Bateman or asked on the WikiProject talk page.
