I cordially invite you to help create a "Bioinformatics & Computational Chemistry" community on Stack Exchange. Stack Exchange is a fast-growing network of question and answer sites. Participating in the Q&A system, you can:
- Ask questions in any area within or across Computational chemistry\biology disciplines
- Find if others have questions that you have encountered in your research or professional career and answer them
- Vote for questions and answers
- Build reputation as a Bioinformatics or Computational Chemistry expert
- Help build a knowledge-base for computational chemistry\biology
Let us create a visible, sustainable and open community of chemistry and biology using StackExchange.
It is easy to put up a Q&A system, but it is much more difficult to develop a successful sustainable community. StackExchange forces a community to build, and prove itself by the commitment of users to the StackExchange Communities. This is done through it's Area51 process.
How to Participate?
To create a Bioinformatics and Computational Chemistry Q&A community hosted by StackExchange, we need to demonstrate participation, and generate a sustained flow of Q&A exchanges. The intial steps are:
- Visit : http://area51.stackexchange.com
- Create an account : click here (opens in new tab)
- Go to the "Bioinformatics and Computational Chemistry" proposal: click here
- Click "Follow It!"
- Ask example questions. Your reputation grows as your questions and comments are voted up by other users. Discuss whether questions posted by others is suitable for the community.
- Vote for questions. You help others earn a reputation..
