Phyloinformatics Summer of Code 2013/Summaries
For the seventh summer in a row, NESCent offered a number of internships aimed at introducing students to open-source software development. This summer, six interns from the 2013 Google Summer of Code™ program, and one from the GNOME Outreach Program for Women worked remotely on an evoinformatics project of their own choosing, each under the guidance of an experienced mentor. NESCent’s 2013 Summer of Code students included Chanda Phelan, Paul Frandsen, Monica-Andreea Dragan, Imran Fanaswala, Joshua Lynch, Zheng Ruan and Yanbo Ye. Their projects ranged from machine learning for ecological genomics to phylogenetics in BioPython to visualization of evolutionary trees.
