WikiProject Computational Biology/ISCB competition announcement 2013

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) announces an international competition to improve the coverage on Wikipedia of any aspect of computational biology. A key component of the ISCB's mission to further the scientific understanding of living systems through computation is to communicate this knowledge to the public at large. Wikipedia has become an important way to communicate all types of science to the public. The ISCB aims to further its mission by increasing the quality of Wikipedia articles about computational biology, and by improving accessibility to this information via Wikipedia. The competition is open to students and trainees at any level either as individuals or as groups.

The prizes provided by ISCB for the best articles submitted will be:

1st prize - $500 (USD) and 1 year membership to the ISCB.
2nd prize - $250 (USD) and 1 year membership to the ISCB.
3rd prize - $150 (USD) and 1 year membership to the ISCB.
