Hi, I'm Tim Vickers, glad to be here.
As you can probably guess from my contributions so far, I am a biochemist with interests in tropical diseases and enzymology. I did my PhD in biochemistry at Dundee University in Scotland but at the moment I am working in America.
If anybody has any questions about these topics I would be delighted to try to help. I am usually glad to answer questions and research stuff for articles, after all, favours owed are valuable things.
At the moment I'm working on Wikipedia to bring as many basic molecular biology, biochemistry and infectious disease articles up to FA level as I can. Even with the help of all the expert editors in the Molecular and Cellular Biology Wikiproject, this is going to be a very long process, but generations of students will bless our efforts as they plagiarise our text!
The MCB project is a group of editors interested in improving the quality of Wikipedia articles on molecular life sciences. Since these pages are usually the top Google hit on any biochemical subject you care to mention, this is more important from an academic viewpoint than you might think. Anybody interested in helping out can sign up on the project page. You will be most welcome.
