Hi Yanbo, and welcome.

To apply for GSoC you need to write a project proposal
(including a workplan for the summer), which will then
be judged by the NESCent GSoC mentors in competition
with the other applicants. We encourage students to
share their draft proposals for feedback - here on the
biopython-dev list and/or the NESCent Phyloinformatics
Summer of Code community on Google Plus. Please
also introduce yourself there:

Are you interested in one of the ideas we put on the wiki?

These are suggestions which can be modified, or provided
there is a suitable mentor you can suggest something different.

Do you have something specific you'd like to work on?
