to Genome Informatics-Google Summer of Code Group

Since 2011, the Open Genome Informatics group has served as an "umbrella organization" to a variety of bioinformatics projects, including GMOD and its software projects -- GBrowse, JBrowse, etc.; Galaxy; Genome Sequence Informatics (OICR); Reactome; WebApollo and WormBase.

If you are interested in taking part in this year's GSoC, take a look at the Open Genome Informatics group -

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We work with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together over 11,000 successful student participants from 103 countries and over 50 million lines of code. Through Google Summer of Code, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios and the opportunity for employment in areas related to their academic pursuits. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers. Best of all, more source code is created and released for the use and benefit of all.
