OpenWetWare WIKI for biologists


posted by cmethod | |

Scientists at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently started their own wiki, OpenWetWare, devoted to sharing lab protocols and data among biology groups worldwide. This resource extends Open Access concepts to lab protocols. OpenWetWare is located on the web at

Its statement of purpose reads:
OpenWetWare is an effort to promote the sharing of information, know-how, and wisdom among researchers and groups who are working in biology & biological engineering. OWW provides a place for labs, individuals, and groups to organize their own information and collaborate with others easily and efficiently. In the process, we hope that OWW will not only lead to greater collaboration between member groups, but also provide a useful information portal to our colleagues, and ultimately the rest of the world.
