WikiProteins enables community annotation in a Wiki-based system. Extracts of major data sources have been fused into an editable environment that links out to the original sources. Data from community edits create automatic copies of the original data. Semantic technology captures concepts co-occurring in one sentence and thus potential factual statements. In addition, indirect associations between concepts have been calculated. We call on a 'million minds' to annotate a 'million concepts' and to collect facts from the literature with the reward of collaborative knowledge discovery. The system is available for beta testing at http://www.wikiprofessional.org. A preview of the version highlighted by WikiProfessional is available at: http://conceptweblinker.wikiprofessional.org/default.py?url= nph-proxy.cgi/010000A/http/genomebiology.com/2008/9/5/R89
