Introduction

This site provides a mapping between the NCBI taxonomy and Wikipedia. It is a work in progress. See data dumps for a description of how data is extracted from the underlying wiki.

Publication

A paper describing this project has been published in PLoS Currents: Tree of Life as Linking NCBI to Wikipedia: a wiki-based approach http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/currents.RRN1228 PMC3080707.

Trial of five Linkouts went live:

Wikipedia links work, iPhylo links don't. File was processed 2010-06-11 07:09:21 BST

iPhylo links now work Rdmpage 11:34, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

We received your LinkOut Simple Text (FT) file "wikipedia.ft", date "2010-06-14,12:01:56. It will be processed and the links will be available to users in 48 hours.

First major release of 52,956 links are now live. Rdmpage 15:12, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Errors

Some pages are flagged as having errors, which might be in the mapping, in NCBI, or in Wikipedia. Some of these "errors" may be internal inconsistencies. For example, the NCBI page for Daphniidae states that NCBI includes the family Moinidae in the family Daphniidae following [1], yet Moinidae have their own entry.
