I wanted to have a blog for quite a long time, and now I have a good reason to start it: Google Summer of Code 2009.
My project is to implement phyloXML support in BioRuby and I am working for NESCent organization.
Here is the project abstract:
Phylogenetic trees are used in important applications, including phylogenomics, phylogeography, gene function prediction, cladistics and the study of molecular evolution. In order to foster successful analysis, exchange, storage and reuse of phylogenetic trees and associated data, the phyloXML format was developed. It can store all necessary information about the phylogenetic tree, like clade, sequence, name and distance. The goal of this project is to implement support for phyloXML in BioRuby.
My project page is: https://www.nescent.org/wg_phyloinformatics/PhyloSoC:PhyloXML_support_in_BioRuby
The source code is on GitHub: http://github.com/rozziite/bioruby/tree/master
I have been using Open Source software for quite a long time already and I am now excited to contribute back to community.
Only TWO spots left for RosettaCON2017!
