WikiData Molecular Biology - ensuring accuracy of molecular biology items in WikiData

Gene Wiki - create and improve articles on all human genes in Wikipedia



Pfam and Rfam databases - Since 2012, Pfam and Rfam have been transcluding Wikipedia pages as the descriptors for protein and RNA families.

RCSB Protein DataBank - In 2014, WikiProject Biophysics persuaded David Goodsell and the Protein DataBank release all Molecule of the Month images under CC BY open licenses.


PLOS Computational Biology and PLOS Genetics - publishing v:PLOS Topic Pages, where articles in those journals are written in a Wikipedia style and copied over after publication in the journal.

Gene - publishing Gene Wiki Reviews, where review articles on gene families in Gene have an accompanying Wikipedia article written by the same authors.

WikiJournal of Science - putting new and existing Wikipedia articles through academic peer review and publication.
