"Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects. Google will be working with several open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together thousands of students and mentors from over 100 countries worldwide, all for the love of code." GSoC has several goals:
The National Resource for Network Biology (NRNB) is organizing the joint efforts of Cytoscape, WikiPathways and other network biology tools. This is a great opportunity to work at the intersection of biology and computing! We take mentoring seriously and are proud of our 90% success rate with former students and projects. But don't take our word for it, read testimonials from prior NRNB students and mentors, and success story profiles. And you also get a certificate of completion!
The success of our mentoring program depends on dedicated mentors, great project ideas, amazing students, and effective fundraising. Please contact us with ideas or leads on potential corporate sponsors or use the PayPal widget below to make your own tax deductible donation.
You can apply for the year-round mentoring program at any time. Fill out the Admissions Form to start the ball rolling.
Google will publish accepted mentoring organizations on February 26. Until then, browse our project ideas to see NRNB projects.
