BioPerl and the Google Summer of Code
In addition to The Perl Foundation being accepted into GSoC 2010, BioPerl is now also part of the Google Summer of Code! The Open Bioinformatics Foundation, which also includes BioPython, BioRuby, and others, has been accepted into the Google Summer of Code for 2010. We are actively looking for students interested in OBF-related bioinformatics projects; new ideas are welcome. Project ideas and other details can be found here:
This isn't the first year BioPerl has been part of GSoC. A successful project was recently published by 2008 GSoC student Mira Han for developing a phyloXML parser for BioPerl.
Update: Rough project idea for use of Modern Perl tools or Perl 6 with BioPerl now added.
