To all the Biopythoneers,

For the last few years Biopython has participated in the
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program under the umbrella
of the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (OBF):

Unfortunately like quite a few previously accepted organisations,
this year the OBF not accepted. Google has kept the total about
the same year on year, so this is probably simply a slot rotation
to get some new organisations involved.

The good news (for those not following the Biopython-dev
mailing list) is we have an alternative option agreed with
the good people at NESCent, as we did back in 2009:


I'd like to thank Eric for co-ordinating this, and encourage
any interested potential students to sign up to the Biopython
development list and NESCent's Google+ group as soon as
possible (if you haven't done so already):


Google are already accepting student applications, and the
deadline is Friday 3 May.  That doesn't leave very long for
asking feedback and talking to potential mentors - which
is essential for a competitive proposal.

Thank you for your interest,
