- A wiki is a type of website that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change some available content. MediaWiki is a software package, and a specific implementation of the wiki concept. OpenWetWare was founded by a group of researchers "interested in increasing the amount of organization, dissemination, and communication in biological research", and uses a customized version of MediaWiki to achieve this goal.
