Hot on the heels of WikiProteins comes:
Huss, J.W. III et al. ( 2008 )
A Gene Wiki for Community Annotation of Gene Function
PLoS Biol 6(7): e175 | Open Access
Which anyone can read, because it’s open access. It’s a realistic assessment of community annotation, focusing on the creation of gene stubs for editing within Wikipedia. Early reaction at the OpenHelix blog and a thread at FriendFeed.
Thanks to Andrew Su, who was kind enough to send me a preprint.
