Introduction/lead[edit]

Hi there, the introduction should be part of the summary, this is explained in the guide to authors on layout - Wikipedia:Guide to layout, part of the main Wikipedia:Manual of Style. Hope this helps, Tim Vickers (talk) 22:52, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Surely this lead paragraph is too long though? Biochemza 15:12, 23 November 2007 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Biochemza (talkcontribs)

Yes, it does need to be condensed a little bit, but the lead isn't like the abstract of a paper, more a cross between an abstract and an introduction. Have a look at some of the other scientific featured articles, such as bacteria, DNA or enzyme to get an example of format. Tim Vickers (talk) 18:15, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
