I have collected some 9 papers using wiki technologies in bioinformatics, ranging from collaborative authoring, ontology-based annotation, to sharing data, and lab reporting. What is your favorite paper describing the use of wikis in bioinformatics?
This isn't a paper but i watched a very interesting/persuasive talk at the recent Genome Informatics conference. It was by Alex Bateman about how they have used Wikipedia to store all of their Rfam descriptions.
I remain unconvinced that wikification of curation is a good and effective model, though. Unless paired with something like a requirement for publication (as the Rfam one did), I don't think that the quality, evenness, and breadth will be adequate. I prefer professional curation. But I also know that's not valued as much by end users or funding agencies in some ways.
