The Gene Wiki project has been generously funded by the National Institutes for General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) since 2009. As the second funding period is wrapping up early next year, it was time to once again look forward and think about our vision for the next 4-5 years. Posted below is what we came up with, submitted earlier this week to the NIH as a competing renewal proposal with Lynn Schriml and Kristian Andersen as co-Investigators. Fingers crossed!

Also a fine time to recognize that this proposal resulted from the direct and indirect contributions of so many people — postdocs, grad students, staff, past and current collaborators, Wikidata and Wikipedia communities, etc etc — far too many to name individually here. For a mostly comprehensive list, please see our grant-related publications.
