Maybe OpenWetWare is not the right wiki community for you? Here are some other science wiki's. Please add to this list.



  • BioMineWiki: A wiki about how to extract metals by the help from microbes in order gain metal and purify water. This wiki is cross-disciplinary and deals with biology, biotechnology, chemistry, hydrometallurgy, environmental questions and engineering.


  • SyntheticPages: Similar to a wiki, "SyntheticPages is a freely available interactive database of synthetic chemistry. We publish practical and reliable organic, organometallic and inorganic chemical synthesis, reactions and procedures deposited by synthetic chemists. Synthetic methods on the site are updated continuously by chemists working in academic and industrial research laboratories."
  • UsefulChem is an open source science project in chemistry led by the Bradley Laboratory at Drexel University (OpenWetWare page)

Electrical engineering

Circuitopedia is a community effort to share knowledge and resources for analog/RF circuit design
