List of projects accepted into Crowdsourcing Biology
Our team develops new technologies and tools to enable large communities of scientists to collaboratively address biological challenges of massive scale. We are part of the the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, one of the largest non-profit research organizations devoted to biomedical research. We operate at the exciting intersection between biological and computational research.
All of our projects revolve around the theme of "crowdsourcing" -- directly engaging scientists to collaboratively achieve projects of massive scale. We currently have three project areas, each of which have plenty of room for GSoC contributors:
- Gene Wiki: comprehensively organize knowledge of all human genes
- BioGPS: provide a gene annotation portal for aggregating gene-centric online content
- Biological games: build games that build scientific knowledge through game play
NOTE: If you'd like to apply to be a mentor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org first with more details. Requests from people who haven't discussed it with us beforehand will be rejected.
