The International Society for Computational Biology is finally getting serious about improving the coverage of computational biology in Wikipedia.

They’ve announced a competition (running from 2012 Sept 9 to 2013 Jan 10) for improvements to approximately 1100 articles that have been identified as relevant to computational biology.  (It is also possible to start new articles, if a topic is currently missing.)

Contest information can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Computational Biology/ISCB competition announcement – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The prizes are not big (first is $500 (US) and a year’s membership to the ISCB, second is $200 and a year’s membership to the ISCB), but either one would look good on a resume, and the service to the community is useful even for those who get no prizes.
