Wikidata is a world readable and writable knowledge base maintained by the Wikimedia Foundation. It offers the opportunity to collaboratively construct a fully open access knowledge graph spanning biology, medicine, and all other domains of knowledge. To meet this potential, social and technical challenges must be overcome most of which are familiar to the biocuration community. These include community ontology building, high precision information extraction, provenance, and license management. By working together with Wikidata now, we can help shape it into a trustworthy, unencumbered central node in the Semantic Web of biomedical data.
