This wiki is used for relatively static content at the Bioinformatics Organization and other topics related to bioinformatics. You will need an account with a verified email address on this site in order to edit anything.



We invite members of the Organization, as well as non-members, to add articles on any of the following:


Please refer to Wikipedia's guidelines on creating new articles. One notable exception to Wikipedia's policy is we accept and encourage autobiographical articles from people in the field of bioinformatics.

Also, when naming articles, no distinction should be made between the field of bioinformatics and the Bioinformatics Organization itself. For example, the article on CVS (Concurrent Versions System) is assumed to refer to the use of CVS at Bioinformatics.Org.

Likewise, the creation of wiki categories is discouraged: e.g., don't create an article titled "Books:Bioinformatics". Rather, if two articles must have the same title, please use parentheses to make the distinction: e.g., "Bioinformatics (book list)".


This wiki began with the content of Damian Counsell's Bioinformatics FAQ, which has been hosted here at Bioinformatics.Org for many years. Additional content was then added from the bioinformatics book list and other static pages at Bioinformatics.Org.
