News/GSoC 2013 Mentors Wanted!
GMOD's participation in Google Summer of Code has been confirmed as the Genome Informatics proposal has been accepted by Google. GSoC is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. This year, the Genome Informatics group is coordinating proposals for seven big bioinformatics projects: Galaxy, GBrowse, GMOD, JBrowse, Reactome, and Wormbase. See the GSoC wiki page for more information or visit the Genome Informatics GSoC page.
We are still interested in new project ideas; if you have one, or you are interested in being a mentor, please post on the Google Summer of Code page.
Questions or comments should be directed towards the Genome Informatics GSoC coordinator, Robin Haw.
More information is also available on the Genome Informatics mailing list.
