Genetic Wikis

I hope that David Rothman will like this little list of genetic wikis. The first three wikis are from Wetpaint, where you can create your own wiki. I’ve learnt about it at Medical 2.0.

And some others from different subjects:

And at last, have you ever heard about the Gene Wiki? According to a document found at The Synaptic Leap:

The Gene Wiki is a genomics community-based, collaborative, workflow first envisioned by Marc A. Marti-Renom, head of the structural Genomics Unit at the Prince Felipe Research Center in Valencia Spain. The aim of the Gene Wiki is to tap into the collective intelligence of the science community to:

  • to mobilize distributed scientific resources based on the prioritization of a knowledgeable community.

Here is a video of Marti-Remon talking about making genomic data open and available for everyone (at Google TechTalks April 07, 2006):
