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!
