Bioblast wiki

Why a wiki editorial team?

We intend to provide the Bioblast wiki as an open forum and 'information synthase' in the field of mitochondrial physiology. It took a few months until the BB wiki was discovered by the SPAM distributors, and free access to generate a personal user account had to be discontinued. Apart from attacks by the unfriendly abuse of the open wiki, we need to develop a transparent strategy for securing our aim at a scientifically based information website. Thus we invite colleagues from all-over-the world to contact us for creating a personal account, and to join us as members of the BB editorial team. ~ Gnaiger Erich 17:19, 24 December 2011 (CET)
