Welcome to the InterMine GSoC 2018 homepage!


We’re excited that you’re interested in GSoC with InterMine! Feel free to browse our project ideas list and please review the InterMine application guidelines. If you’re interested in a project, please email both mentors listed for the project. We’ll be happy to discuss the projects in more detail.

For GSoC applications, your proposal is more important than making PRs or prototypes. However - if you’d like to start contributing to InterMine, you’re welcome to do this anytime, not just GSoC! Check out these locations:

  • Issues labelled good first bug in InterMine - some of these don’t require any coding so can be easy to get started.
  • Any of the issues in these two repos: (Linux / Mac users only). bsbang-crawler and bsbang-frontend.
  • Help Wanted in BlueGenes, our ClojureScript-based UI.
  • finally, if none of those suit you - have a look at any repository that interests you and see if you can think of an improvement on your own!

You can read more about how Google Summer of Code went last year with InterMine in our blog.


If you’re an active InterMine user, developer, or maintainer, and you have an interesting idea you’d like to suggest and/or mentor, please either email yo at intermine.org, make a pull request or issue on our GSoC repo, or contact us.
