We are going to apply to one of the research councils for some BioJava
funding. There are now some grants available for supporting tools that
support research. The plan would be to apply for:
Funding for a workshop:
Bring together people who use and develop BioJava (and other Bio* projects, if
relevant) to discuss:
* what they use BioJava for
* the things it is good for
* any things that could be improved
This will result in a jointly authored BioJava paper discussing what we have
learned and where we are going next.
Funding for full-time biojava developers:
We would be looking for two people. One post would concentrate on the core
coding, and one to work on documentation, the biojava-in-anger and useful
example applications. Depending on what came out of the workshop, the thrust
of the developer time may well go into adding support for post-genomics,
metabolomics and the rest.
It would be realy helpful if people could let me know if you are interested in
any of this. In particular, letters of support for BioJava would be awesome.
Let me know if you woud like to attend the workshop, or have strong views
about the future direction of biojava.
