Nature Reviews Genetics: An Ever-Evolving Review

your information resource in human molecular genetics
An article highlighting new ways of using the interactive web to generate community-driven reviews of scientific knowledge will be subject to some of its own recommendations this week. Published online in Nature Reviews Genetics, the article takes reviews publishing to a new level.

Leading bioinformatician Lincoln Stein discusses the biology cyberinfrastructure - the interconnected network of databases and computational tools that drive modern biological research. He points to new paradigms for publishing reviews in which the interactive web enables multiple users to contribute and edit material. Demonstrating that he practices what he preaches, a WIKI and commenting pages will go online at the same time as the article to allow readers to update material from the review as the field evolves, and to add their own opinions on the article.

This combination of commissioned, professionally edited material with dynamic pages that can be modified by the reader breaks the mould of traditional review publishing.
