Wikimarathon on bioinformatics


Presentation of the project Barcelona Unseminars in Bioinformatics (BUB hub)

A wikimarathon on bioinformatics will take place on Nov 24th to present the project Barcelona Unseminars in Bioinformatics (BUB hub).

The International Society in Computational Biology (ISCB) organizes an annual competition dedicated to the edition of Wikipedia articles related to computational biology. BUB members want to organize a joint candidature to write five articles that will help making the knowledge of their discipline more accessible to the general public. 

At the beginning of the meeting, Toni Hermoso (Bioinformatic at CRG and active collaborator at Amical Viquipèdia) will introduce the wiki philosophy and the edition and writing of entries. Following that, the participants will split in working groups and work on documenting the entries. 

The event is organized by BUB hub and Bioinformatics Barcelona
