Welcome to the Wikiversity Gene project.


Participants in this project explore genes, or specific isoforms.

Learning materials

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the resource (resources are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing!

You should also read about the Wikiversity:Learning model. Resources should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple projects. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.


A search on the full web or at Wikibooks will provide you with quite a variety of texts on genes.


  • Go to Genes. Enter a number from 1 to 100,534,000, sometimes followed by [uid], and a common name for your organism of interest, e.g., "human", without the quotes if one word or with the quotes, e.g., "Eastern chipmunk", if two or more. If the number you've chosen does not contain a gene for your organism, try entering only the common name for the organism. Some genes have multiple isoforms coming from the same gene locus. Pick one or all, as you wish.
  • Feel free to compose an activity! Be bold!


At the bottom of this project resource is a template entitled {{gene project}}, which contains lectures, articles, activities, quizzes and other readings.
