The ConceptWiki features tables containing other identifiers (from various databases) and associated terminological information. Apart from identifiers and synonyms, additional information for each concept, such as a definition and or semantic type, is available by clicking on a "More about this concept" link. The ConceptWiki focuses on life sciences concepts and people working within the life sciences domains. The terminology and identifiers will be freely downloadable from the ConceptWiki and can be used to as a thesaurus to identify concept-denoting tokens in text and databases.

     6== Contents and Functionality of the ConceptWiki ==
    88The ConceptWiki has two major types of content, Life sciences concepts and people pages, called WikiPeople.  These two sections have been filled using information provided by several members of the Concept Web Alliance consortium to jumpstart a medium capable of developing valuable knowledge repositories. The main focus of the life science and medical section is to include pertinent concepts due to their role in biology and disease. To every concept, scientists can add new or edit existing textual commentary, for example, to nuance or describe new biological functions or processes. It will also be possible to establish links between two records to illustrate pertinent connections. All modifications are attributed to the participating scientist and certain granting agencies have indicated that they are interested in using the resulting contributions as indices of scholarly achievement. The WikiPeople section is a forum for scientists to display their published works and the author pages can be modified and enhanced by the individual.where you can find more than a million biomedical concepts, and more than million authors.
