The Phyloinformatics Summer of Code program provides a unique  
opportunity for undergraduate, masters, and PhD students to obtain  
hands-on experience writing and extending open-source software for  
evolutionary informatics under the mentorship of experienced  
developers from around the world. The program is the participation of  
the US National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) as a mentoring  
organization in the Google Summer of Code(tm) (http://code.google.com/soc/ 

NESCent is particularly targeting students interested in both  
evolutionary biology and software development. All project ideas are  
flexible and many can be adjusted in scope to match the skills of the  
student.  We also welcome novel project ideas that dovetail with  
student interests.

INQUIRIES: phylosoc {at} nescent {dot} org. We strongly encourage all  
interested students to get in touch with us with their ideas as early  
on as possible.
