Join us for as little as 20-30 minutes on Sunday December 13 anytime from 8:00 am-12:00 pm at the San Diego Convention Center in Room 31A to improve the cell biology content on Wikipedia!

Wikipedia is the fifth most popular website in the world, boasting 18 billion page views per month. Because of the digestible nature of the articles, it is often the first resource students, teachers, researchers, and the general public check to learn about new material. Using this existing resource, ASCB can disseminate correct scientific information to the masses.

ASCB’s Wikipedia Edit-a-thon aims to:

Empower cell biologists and basic scientists in general with the skills necessary to contribute to Wikipedia with their authoritative expertise in their research field. It is our hope that this event will inspire members to continue to edit the encyclopedia as they advance the frontiers of science.
Gather a critical mass of experts who can significantly contribute to updating, editing and adding scientifically sound content to Wikipedia.
