Editing Wikipedia

Hah, okay...I was trying to practice what I preach, but maybe editing Wikipedia isn't quite as easy as I thought.

Case in point: Yesterday I was looking at the entry on the Human Genome, and in the References section I noticed a bit of vandalism in the first reference. As of this writing, it reads:

International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium (2004). "Finishing the euchromatic sequence of the human gspot.". Nature 431 (7011): 931-45.

Whoops. Some idiot thought it would be cool to replace that last word of the title "genome" with "gspot". The Wikipedia guidelines on vandalism say to revert the article and report the vandalism on the Talk page of the article. Problem is, I'm not sure how to edit the references. When I click on the [edit] button for References, it pulls up a link. I'm not sure where the actual reference list is stored.

I left a note about it on the Discussion page, but it's still been up there for at least 24 hours. As a side project, if anybody can figure out how to fix this and let me know how you did it, I'd be grateful.
