Several other communities (in particular Stats and Biology, which are closely related to Biofx.SE) have MathJax support.

This would be highly desirable here as well, since pseudocode and equations abound in bioinformatics.

Case in point, my first two answers would both benefit from it.

  • $\begingroup$ If it is pseudo-code or code use the code features inherit from Stack Overflow. For equations it could be, but it has an impact on the loading time of the page and SE is not eager to enable it everywhere. $\endgroup$ – llrs May 17 '17 at 11:13
  • $\begingroup$ @Llopis I disagree, writing equation-heavy pseudocode as code makes it harder to read. Equations are often more appropriate. $\endgroup$ – Konrad Rudolph May 17 '17 at 11:19
  • $\begingroup$ For equations I agree with you. But this require a developer from SE $\endgroup$ – llrs May 17 '17 at 11:21

    $\begingroup$ @Llopis SE staff monitor local meta sites, that's why Konrad posted here. This just needs to be enabled in some setting somewhere since the infrastructure already exists for other sites in the network. $\endgroup$ – terdon May 19 '17 at 11:59

    $\begingroup$ SE staff usually enables MathJax if the community shows a use for it. Two examples from one person might not be enough “shows a use”, could you find a couple more examples by different authors? $\endgroup$ – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Jun 1 '17 at 20:39

Now enabled both on main and here on meta.

  • $\begingroup$ Awesome. Now let’s see if we can actually get people to use it … $\endgroup$ – Konrad Rudolph Jul 26 '17 at 16:03
