== Who We Are ==
:Throughout the course of this project, participants will co-create and foster an open access citizen science project that accomplishes specific scientific goals while educating and nurturing community and scientific creativity.
:Those participating in this project adhere to the following statements:
''We are building egalitarian networks.'':
: Hierarchy, privilege and discrimination have the potential to repress creative thought in science, deny access to science, and as a result, hold back global scientific development. As a collective of citizen scientists working toward a more complete understanding of molecular medicine, we commit ourselves to nurturing creative, positive voices within our community. We commit ourselves to listening to, hearing and acknowledging the diverse voices that make our community great!
''We believe in open access and transparency'':
: Everyone is invited to participate in and learn from this project. We will always make time for conversation and teaching opportunities. Online meetings, communications regarding this project, and all findings will be publicized on this fully-editable wiki with the stipulation that those participating adhere to a value system of '''mutual respect''', '''compassion''' and '''safety'''; while accepting that these values will be '''enforced via community-based decision making'''.
''We believe in consensus'':
: We believe scientists should be open to discussion around research experiments, data interpretation, and project directions. To foster a spirit of openness and understanding, decision making is made by consensus. Proposals are brought to weekly meetings and offered to the group. The group develops and integrates proposals into organizational policy and scientific research aims.
''We believe in asking (and answering) questions'':
: '''Science is a ''quest''ion'''. Our social quest is the pursuit of knowledge.  We desire to collectively answer questions and serve our communities. We believe that all knowledge must be '''free''' and '''accessible''' and will continue to work to maintain that openness.
