Waiting for WikiProteins

Posted March 30th, 2007 by konrad

EN: I am asking myself when WikiProfessionals will launch WikiProteins. In a news post [1] ( alternatively check this ars technica article) it was claimed to be online in March 2007. At the moment the website only shows the demo video of the protein annotation wiki. It will have strong Semantic Web functionality under the hood and will be followed by similar wikis like WikiAuthors, WikiChemicals and WikiClinical. Well, that’s the plan at least.

    Good question. I hope they will publish more information about the semantic web and analysis methods that WikiProtein has under the hood, when the wiki is finally online.

    I looked at the demo.

    I like the idea to the annotation plateform WikiProteins. But

    how do you managed to have the right information from researcher X ? this is a little more complex than public wikipedia.
    and What are the degree of information researcher are raedy to share ?
