The MCB project needs your help!

By focusing our efforts to produce articles of very high quality, the MCB Collaboration of the Month serves a vital role both to the WikiProject and to the greater Wikipedia project as a whole. Unfortunately, the contributions to the CotM have fallen off greatly in the past few months. If possible, please help!

About us[edit]

This project aims to better organize information in articles related to molecular and cell biology on Wikipedia. A major problem facing biology is organizing the vast amount of information that has been and continues to be collected about genomes, proteomes and cell function. A primary goal of this project is to collect and organize the totality of this information and make it accessible to researchers and laypeople alike by providing an entry point to the wealth of biological data that is currently hidden in obscure databases and journal articles.

If you would like to help, feel free to add yourself to the list of participants, or just look over the How you can help section below. Also of interest is the Molecular and Cellular Biology Portal associated with this project.

Concrete goals[edit]

  • Create and perfect articles on the fundamental topics in molecular and cellular biology, with a particular focus on subjects that are discussed at the primary and secondary school level. The perfect article is complete, but accessible to a secondary school student.
  • Create a standard system for presenting the information about the proteins and cells that are discussed in Wikipedia articles.


  • If you have a proposal or want to discuss an idea with us, you can either use the main discussion page, or e-mail the MCB director, who will try to put you in touch with somebody who can help. E-mails to the project can be kept confidential if this is requested by the sender.

Similar WikiProjects[edit]

The list of active projects has sections for both Biology and Health sciences, but the most relevant seems to be the Wikipedia:WikiProject Medicine listed at the Biology Portal and the Medicine Portal. Listed within the Medicine Project, there are a number of task forces that deal with specific Medical topics. While there might be some overlap between this project and the things covered in some of the task forces at WP:MED, there is only minimal emphasis on the type of molecular and cell biology issues that are centered on fundamental concerns such as naming and categorizing genes, proteins and cell types.

Improve articles[edit]

  • Take a look at the article worklist. It contains a list of all of the articles that have been identified as being of interest to the project, organized according to category and assigned an importance and quality grade.
  • Contribute to a team effort by participating in the Collaboration of the Month, a monthly group effort to improve molecular and cellular biology articles to featured article status.
  • Add infoboxes to protein articles to conform to our protein infobox style.
  • Add images. Diagrams and figures are particularly important in science articles. Please see the diagram guide for recommendations on how to standardize the depiction of proteins, metabolic pathways and cells. Images covered by a non-commercial uses disclaimer should be replaced by images generated by Wikipedia users themselves. For proteins, this can be done using the raw structural data from the Protein Data Bank, the contents of which are in the public domain. Members can ask for help in creating pictures, figures, or diagrams that do not yet exist or need replacing at the picture request.
  • Add references. Correct and reliable references are vital if the articles produced by this project are to be a verifiable source of information for our readers. Adding references is easy with this tool. Just submit the PubMed ID and copy and paste the resulting output (xxxx) into the page between <ref> xxxxx </ref> Alternatively, if you use Internet Explorer or Firefox (2.0+), then Wouterstomp's bookmarklet can automate this step from the PubMed abstract page.
  • Join Open Edit-a-thon Events. The DNAdigest Wikipedia Editathon London 29th of May Bioscience, Genomics, Genetics edit-a-thon, free beer and pizzas for all too.

Categorize the many MCB-related articles[edit]

Direct our focus[edit]

Improve the project itself[edit]

  • Help to develop the protein infobox templates. Protein information boxes can be included in each wikipedia article about a particular protein. Eventually, there should also be an information box about cell types.
  • Assist in public relations and outreach by recruiting editors interested in molecular and cellular to contribute to Wikipedia.
