Dear Bioconductor developers,

Did you consider submitting an application to the Google Summer of Code (GSOC)? The deadline for application submission is Friday!


Basically, Google pays a student $5000 to write code for an open source project for 3 months. The R project has participated in previous years, and this year I submitted the application form for R. Google asks "Are you an established or larger organization who would like to vouch for a new organization applying this year?" so I can do that for you if the Bioconductor project applies. To give you some idea of the questions they ask, this is our application for this year:
