Gene Wiki Hairball 1

Here is a view of the hyperlink network in the Gene Wiki.

Generated as follows:

  1. Query Wikipedia for articles in the Protein category (using the API with some help from the Bliki java client library).
  2. Extract links to other Wikipedia articles
  3. Build link network in Cytoscape (organic layout)
Pretty I think, now what do we do with it?
