Thanks very much for creating this...

Mostly as an immune response to the homeopathy discussions :-), I have been writing a number of starting articles on such things as leukocyte types, etc. Basophil is on the list, as is mast cell. I've just scratched things such as complement, and I really need to go back and do metadata for some.

I've been daunted by not having any software to create structural formulas for infoboxes. It's very cheering to see a perfectly reasonable article without it; it may get me to write more about the molecules.

I notice that immune system shows as a red (pink, magenta, whatever) link. As an interim measure, I've been doing [[immunology|immune system]]. Can you live with that, or do we want separate articles for discipline vs. the top-level article, with many branches, for immune response? Howard C. Berkowitz 19:31, 21 October 2008 (UTC)


Howard, I can make structures for you pretty quickly, and will be doing so soon for this article too. Immunology would fine for now in my opinion, although I didn't write the text. David E. Volk 20:05, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
