A wiki is a website which can be collaboratively modified by its users via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a rich-text editor. A wiki can be both public and private and the ability to edit can also be password protected. The collaborative editing capabilities of the wiki interface make them ideally suited to be used as electronic laboratory notebooks.
