About the Project


dcyphr is an open-edit wiki resource on a mission to decentralize science, by informing the public on the latest COVID-19 research. We are currently working on expanding our collection of research article summaries for COVID-19 research, and hope to eventually also become the first resort for the general public to understand the latest research in every realm (think Wikipedia, but specifically for science!).

How far along is it

We have already launched the platform, and are currently working on adding new features and fixing bugs every day. We have several COVID-19 summaries and core biology summaries already contributed by our team members for the general public to browse through. We have also secured some venture capital funding to ensure the continued maintenance of the website.

Help Needed

Who is already working on this

We are a small team of five passionate Yale undergrads who thought of this idea at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and have been hard at work launching the website within the past two months.
