Google Summer of Code 2016 (GSoC)

Google accepted NRNB as mentoring organization.

Google often runs a summer program called Google Summer of Code (GSoC), in which Google pays students to work on open-source software. The students work remotely from wherever they live, on projects organized by various groups under the umbrella of a mentoring organization. In the past, our own standards and software project, SBML (the Systems Biology Markup Language), has been selected and had 3 GSoC slots filled.

Google is running GSoC again this year. We have many project ideas involving SBML under the umbrella of the NRNB (National Resource for Network Biology).

Important dates (see GSoC2016):

  • June 27: All of our students successfully passed their midterm evaluation

Open bachelor theses

The following topics are conducted in close collaboration with the Systems Biology Research Group at the University of California, San Diego:
  • This project is well suitable for students of media informatics, bioinformatics, computer science, and related areas: Animierte biochemische Netzwerke. The aim is the creation of video clips for realistic biochemical networks given new data and manually drawn pathway maps.
  • This project addresses students with interest in programing web applications: Webbasierte Erstellung biochemischer Netzwerke

Open master theses

This topic will be conducted in close collaboration with the Systems Biology Research Group at the University of California, San Diego: Medikamentenwirkung auf personalisierte Blutmodelle gesunder Probanden In this project, a new comprehensive model of human blood will be created based on the published models for erythrocytes and platelets. Available data comprise metabolomics of approximately 100 substances within red blood cells, plasma, and platelets as well as SNP profiles of human donors prior and after taking selected drugs. The aim is to draw conclusions on or to predict personalized drug effects.
