Biopython 1.64 released

Source distributions and Windows installers for Biopython 1.64 are now available from the downloads page on the official Biopython website and from the Python Package Index (PyPI).

This release of Biopython supports Python 2.6 and 2.7, 3.3 and also the new 3.4 version. It is also tested on PyPy 2.0 to 2.3, and Jython 2.7b2.

The new experimental module Bio.CodonAlign facilitates building codon alignment and further analysis upon it. This work is from the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) project by Zheng Ruan.

Bio.Phylo now has tree construction and consensus modules, from on the GSoC work by Yanbo Ye.

Bio.Entrez will now automatically download and cache new NCBI DTD files for XML parsing under the user’s home directory (using ~/.biopython on Unix like systems, and $APPDATA/biopython on Windows).

Bio.Sequencing.Applications now includes a wrapper for the samtools command line tool.

Bio.PopGen.SimCoal now also supports fastsimcoal.

SearchIO hmmer3-text, hmmer3-tab, and hmmer3-domtab now support output from hmmer3.1b1.

BioSQL can now use the mysql-connector package (available for Python 2, 3 and PyPy) as an alternative to MySQLdb (Python 2 only) to connect to a MySQL database.

Many thanks to the Biopython developers and community for making this release possible, especially the following contributors:

  • Chunlei Wu (first contribution)
  • Edward Liaw (first contribution)
  • Eric Talevich
  • Leighton Pritchard
  • Manlio Calvi (first contribution)
  • Markus Piotrowski (first contribution)
  • Melissa Gymrek (first contribution)
  • Michiel de Hoon
  • Nigel Delaney (first contribution)
  • Peter Cock
  • Saket Choudhary
  • Tiago Antao
  • Vincent Davis (first contribution)
  • Wibowo ‘Bow’ Arindrarto
  • Yanbo Ye (first contribution)
  • Zheng Ruan (first contribution)

OBF Google Summer of Code students 2014

Hi all, I’m pleased to announce the acceptance of OBF’s Google Summer of Code 2014 (GSoC) students:[GSoC 2014 Logo]

  • Sarah Berkemer – “Open source high-performance BioHaskell” (Mentors: Christian Höner zu Siederdissen, Ketil Malde) (blog)
  • Loris Cro – “An ultra-fast scalable RESTful API to query large numbers of VCF datapoints” (Mentors: Francesco Strozzi, Raoul Bonnal & the BioRuby team) (blog)
  • Victor Kofia – “JSBML: Redesign the implementation of mathematical formulas” (Mentors: Alex Thomas, Sarah Keating & the JSBML team) (blog)
  • Evan Parker – “Addition of a lazy loading sequence parser to Biopython’s SeqIO package” (Mentors: Wibowo Arindrarto, Peter Cock & the Biopython team) (blog)
  • Ibrahim Vazirabad – “Improving the Plug-in interface for CellDesigner” (Mentors: Andreas Dräger, Alex Thomas & the JSBML team) (blog)
  • Leandro Watanabe – “Dynamic Modeling of Cellular Populations within JSBML” (Mentors: Nicolas Rodriguez, Chris Myers & the JSBML team) (blog)

Congratulations to our accepted students!

Thanks very much to all the students who applied, we very much appreciate your hard work.

We are now in the GSoC Community Bonding Period. Official work starts on May 23rd, and until then, students should prepare for their projects: get on the project mailing lists, solidify your plans, figure out where all the version control repositories are and which branch or fork you’ll be working on, and start doing preparatory work.

Here’s to a great 2014 Summer of Code,

Eric & Raoul

Catering at BOSC CodeFest 2014

Bioinformatics Open Source Codefest, July 9 and 10th in Boston, now with sponsored food and drinks!

The OBF will be holding the fifth annual BOSC Codefest, an informal two day “hackathon” or “coding festival” preceding the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC 2014) in Boston (USA).

This year, the BOSC Codefest 2014 is being hosted by hack/reduce (a wonderful hackerspace in Cambridge, Boston) and has also been kindly sponsored by Curoverse (the team behind the open source platform Arvados) and Harbinger Partners, Inc.

Thanks to this sponsorship, this year the organisers will able to include catering for the participants – I’m expecting at least coffee and pizza, plus what ever caffeine rich drinks or local pastries are in fashion with the Boston programmers? I checked on wikipedia and Jolt Cola doesn’t exist in the USA any more… so I’m waiting to see what our local organisers Brad Chapman & Michael Heuer have planned.

If you are wondering what happens exactly at a CodeFest, I suggest Brad’s blog post from the BOSC Codefest 2013, or Möller et al (2013). Basically these meeting are a chance for developers of open source bioinformatics (not just the OBF’s Bio* projects) to get together and work on common interests. Things work best with some pre-meeting planning on the usual project development mailing lists or IRC, but are also a great way to meet other scientists and developers in person with more time to chat than during a conference coffee break.

Please note that while there is no registration fee for the BOSC Codefest 2014, please do fill in the registration form to help with the planning/catering.

We’re hoping all the Codefest participants will stay for the BOSC meeting itself, which requires formal paid registration as one of the big ISCB 2014 conference’s SIG satellite meetings. Note that we’re offering a BOSC fee waiver for student speakers, this year. If you are going to BOSC, please remember to submit your BOSC abstracts this week!

Free registration to student presenters at BOSC 2014

To encourage more student presentations at the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC), this year we’re waiving the registration fee for accepted student presenters. When you submit your abstract (BOSC abstract call open until 4th April), you must tick the student box:

Student submissions must have a full-time student as the first named and presenting author, and be mostly written by students.

Please note that because BOSC registration is via the ISCB as one of the ISCM SIG meetings, eligible students must contact us before filling in their ISCB registration to ensure the BOSC SIG fee is waived.

Furthermore, as in previous years, BOSC Student Travel Awards sponsored by Eagle Genomics will be awarded to the top student presentations to help with your travel and accommodation costs.

Update (2 May 2014): We’ve just sent out the accepted talk invitations, and are offering a registration fee waiver to four student speakers.

OBF GSoC 2014: Call for student applications

Google Summer of Code 2014Are you a university student and interested in spending the summer developing open-source bioinformatics software?

(Good! Keep reading.)

On Monday, March 10, Google Summer of Code 2014 (GSoC) will begin accepting student applications to work with mentoring organizations like OBF.

Here are the steps for you to prepare an application and apply for GSOC 2014 with OBF:

  1. Check the OBF ideas page for potential projects you’d like to work on, and identify one or a few that you’re most interested in doing.
  2. Read our guide for prospective GSoC students on the OBF wiki. Also see Google’s GSoC FAQ and GSoC student guide, if you’re with us so far.
  3. Introduce yourself on the OBF GSoC mailing list. Tell us which project(s) you like, any modifications to them you’d like to make, or propose your own idea.
  4. Once you’ve settled on a project or two and contacted your potential mentors, begin preparing a detailed project timeline for the summer. This timeline should cover each week of the summer, as far as you can plan it, describing the week’s specific goals, coding tasks, anticipated problems and open questions. (Example 1, Example 2)
  5. Submit your application to Google early. You can keep revising it on the Melange website until the deadline on March 21, but once you’ve submitted your basic information we can begin giving you feedback and suggestions to improve your application. In addition to your weekly timeline, you can link to examples of code you’ve written (e.g. on GitHub); a small contribution of code (e.g. a bug fix) to the project you’re applying to work with would really impress us.

Feel free to contact us on the mailing list or Google Plus if you have any questions.
