A wikimarathon on bioinformatics will take place at the PRBB on November 24th, organised by the project Barcelona Unseminars in Bioinformatics (BUB hub), a group of students at the UPF who have taken the Heidelberg Unseminars in Bioinformatics (HUB) as a model to build a transversal forum, open to both students and senior scientists, where ideas and knowledge about topics related with bioinformatics world can be shared. 

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 the 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, and it will take place at Ramón y Cajal Room, PRBB. Please bring your own laptops!!
