The Proteins wiki is intended as a community-moderated encyclopedia for proteins, with an emphasis on function and structure. Editors are invited to upload verifiable, but not necessarily published information about proteins and protein methods. Citation of published scientific literature and external links to other scientific databases are encouraged wherever possible.
The main goal of the Proteins wiki is to foster a collaborative environment in which researchers can develop testable scientific hypotheses about proteins, especially functional annotation on the genomic scale, and exchange ideas/methods for testing those hypotheses. Some researchers here have been funded by the National Science Foundation to annotate a significant fraction of the Arabidopsis thaliana genome. We hope that other protein researchers will find the site useful as well.
We wish to maintain close ties with Wikipedia and, in particular, its excellent MCB WikiProject, while being complementary and including information that Wikipedia cannot. In general, we hope to promote a helpful, friendly environment for scientific discussions.
