Projects using WikidataEdit


Some of the structured data displayed on Commons is drawn from Wikidata, some is (or will be) stored in Commons own Wikibase.


Gene WikiEdit

The Wikidata:WikiProject Molecular biology as Wikipedia:Gene Wiki evolved from storing data in infoboxes to storing data at Wikidata. See Wikidata:WikiProject Gene Wiki and Wikidata talk:WikiProject Molecular biology.

The use of w:Template:PBB and w:Template:GNF Protein box was replaced by w:Template:Infobox gene populated from Wikidata. Initially the project created an infobox for each gene from the w:Entrez database and stored it as a subpage of the template PBB. The template was invoked as {{PBB|geneid}} which transcluded the infobox stored in the corresponding subpage of the template. For an example see w:Template:PBB/1000.
