Welcome to the Molecular and Cell Biology taskforce of WikiProject Molecular Biology.
If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the talkpage of WikiProject Molecular Biology, the centralized point for discussion, thank you.


This project aims to improve and organise articles related to molecular and cell biology on Wikipedia. If you would like to help, feel free to add yourself to the list of participants, drop by our discussion page or just look over the How you can help section below.


Collect and organize the wealth of information in databases and academic journals on genomes, proteomes and biological functions to ensure that it is accessible to both researchers and laypeople
Improve articles to featured article status, especially vital articles, with a particular focus on subjects that are discussed at the primary and secondary school level
Create a standard system for presenting the information about the proteins and cells that are discussed in Wikipedia articles
