Well, the first statement increases your chances, but the second pushes
you out! ;-) Wait, last chance: What is better Gnome or KDE? ;-)))
Are applications for the SoC biological database manager project are still
open? I know it's last-minute, but I thought it can't hurt to ask. Please
let me know if it is possible to still apply, and what I would need to do
Just go to the GSoC page and apply as student. I think it is not too late
but I personally have no idea how to apply as student - I just found out
how to apply as mentor. ;-)
In 2006, I got an NSERC (Canada's big science funding body) award to do
bioinformatics research as an undergrad. When I got tired of manually
updating my three or four databases every few months, I wrote a Ruby script
to automate the process. If the proposed database manager had existed then,
my life would have been much easier. This is a great idea for a project, and
I really hope it gets completed (even if it isn't by me).
As far as I know you are the only applicant.
You would be ver welcome to work on this - or any other stuff you
might find interesting in Debian-Med.
