The International Society for Computational Biology has extended the deadline for a competition it announced earlier this year that aims to improve existing Wikipedia articles about computational biology.
ISCB said this week that the competition, which officially opened on Sept. 9, will run for four months and end on Jan. 10, 2013. Initially, the organizers planned to run the contest for two months (BI 7/20/2012).
The best article, selected by a panel of judges, will receive $500 and a year’s membership to the ISCB. A second prize of $200 and a year’s membership to the ISCB will also be awarded.
Full details about the competition are available here.
ISCB first announced the competition at the 20th annual international conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology held in Long Beach, Calif., in July.
