ISCB Wikipedia Competition: December 31, 2017
ISCB's  6th annual international competition to improve the coverage on Wikipedia of any aspect of computational biology is open for submissions. A key component of the ISCB's mission to further the scientific understanding of living systems through computation is to communicate this knowledge to the public at large. Wikipedia has become an important way to communicate all types of science to the public and Wikidata plays an increasingly growing role in that. The ISCB aims to further its mission by increasing the quality of Wikipedia and Wikidata coverage of Computational biology, and by improving accessibility to this information via Wikipedia and its sister sites. The competition is open to students and trainees at any level either as individuals or as groups. Claim an article and submit by December 31, 2017!
