Hi all,

Great news: Google announced today that the Open Bioinformatics
Foundation has been accepted as a mentoring organization for this
summer's Google Summer of Code!

GSoC is a Google-sponsored student internship program for open-source
projects, open to students from around the world (not just US
residents).   Students are paid a $5000 USD stipend to work as a
developer on an open-source project for the summer. For more on GSoC,
see GSoC 2010 FAQ at http://tinyurl.com/yzemdfo

Student applications are due April 9, 2010 at 19:00 UTC.  Students who
are interested in participating should look at the OBF's GSoC page at
http://open-bio.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code, which lists project
ideas, and who to contact about applying.

For current developers on OBF projects, please consider volunteering
to be a mentor if you have not already, and contribute project ideas.
Just list your name and project ideas on OBF wiki and on the relevant
project's GSoC wiki page.

Thanks to all who helped make OBF's application to GSoC a success, and
let's have a great, productive summer of code!
