One final reminder that I am a mentor for two Google Summer of Code
projects that involve extensive matplotlib GUI development for python
The INCF (incf.org) is sponsoring two GSOC projects that will directly
benefit PyDSTool (http://pydstool.sf.net), a math modeling toolbox for
science and engineering that some of you will know. One, if not both,
of the projects will involve significant technical usage of MPL's 2D
GUI widgets but, more excitingly, to build new types of model
visualization tools over MPL. MPL has been chosen to maximize platform
independence and minimize reliance on additional user installation of
third party libraries, and is well suited for the prototyping of
application front ends for research code.
High level knowledge of math and the theoretical principles of cell
biology are beneficial but not required.
Applications can begin right away! Read more about the process here:
