We should add LaTeX capabilities to the Wiki text editor. This will bump-up publication collaboration productivity.
The SVN capabilities of the wiki make it ideal hub for science publication collaborations. However, the current Wiki formatting environment (https://nanohub.org/tools/crystal_viewer/wiki/WikiFormatting) does not understands LaTeX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaTeX).
There are some LaTeX implementations for Trac online:
Since LaTeX is the main scientific formatting tool for scientific publications and the NanoHUB nature is multidisciplinary (many groups working on each project), adding LaTeX functionality within Wikis must be a priority. This will bump-up our productivity as we would simultaneously work in the most up to date version of a publication draft in its final deliverable form (e.g. no need to write it up in the wiki, then in Word and then port it to LaTeX for the publisher).
