Hypercycle; Wikipedia Year of Science; Snake envenomings
New Topic Page: Hypercycle
A hypercycle: at each step, a reaction is catalyzed that produces the catalyst for the next step.
Another article in PLOS Computational Biology's Topic Pages series was published this month. It is a rewrite of the article on the chemical concept of a hypercycle of molecules that can keep reproducing themselves as a group. The article was featured on the homepage of the English Wikipedia shortly thereafter under Did you know.
PLOS supports the Wikipedia Year of Science
The Wiki Education Foundation has declared 2016 to be their Wikipedia Year of Science. A number of organizations across the scholarly landscape have engaged with the initiative already, and this month, The Public Library of Science (or PLOS, for short) have voiced their support as well, e.g. in this blog post.
Recent uploads: snake envenomings; a parasitic flower; brain morphometry
One of the uploads this month is this Arabic translation of the SVG remake
of a figure
from a PLOS ONE article about the global distribution of snake envenomings.
Unusually few files have been uploaded from open-access sources this month, with no obvious reason for the change. In any case, a selection is embedded below. If you can think of wiki pages where the following files (or other files from the same sources) could be useful, please put them in there or let us know.
