09:45 gerolamo hi
09:45 gerolamo I was thinking of learning BioPerl and helping out
09:46 gerolamo I've used Perl extensively
09:46 gerolamo but I don't know where to start
09:46 gerolamo maybe you have a starting point please ?
09:46 gerolamo like a bug I could fix
09:46 gerolamo or a feature I could implement
09:46 gerolamo or some tests I could write
09:46 gerolamo whatever you think is appropriate

09:58 luisrodr Hi gerolamo
09:58 luisrodr There are two places to look
09:58 luisrodr [1] http://bioperl.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code
09:58 luisrodr [2] http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Bugs
09:59 luisrodr You can find some great ideas in [1] and open bugs in [2]
09:59 luisrodr Hope it is useful
10:00 gerolamo_ I can't get into GSOC
10:00 gerolamo_ I tried a couple of years ago
10:00 gerolamo_ 2008 to be precise
10:00 gerolamo_ and my general oppinion is that you need to contribute a lot prior to GSOC to attract attention and to prove that you're a worthy candidate
10:01 gerolamo_ which I did not.. so I don't think I stand any chance of being selected
10:01 gerolamo_ still here
10:02 luisrodr Still, there are some good ideas there, some of which won't be used at the GSoC
10:02 luisrodr Any idea without assigned mentor
10:10 gerolamo_ luisrodr: do you use bioperl a lot ? do you use it at work ?
10:10 luisrodr Yes, I use it very often
10:11 gerolamo_ then we could keep a close correspondence about a particular bug ?
10:11 luisrodr Yes, sure, as far as I use that particular module
10:11 gerolamo_ luisrodr: tell me what module you use, I want to focus on something that we both have in common so I don't waste your time
10:13 gerolamo_ I will do this Find a module that you use --> Find a bug on it --> Start solving the bug --> Talk to you along the way about what the module does and how it does it
10:13 luisrodr The modules I most frequently are Bio::Search* and Bio::Seq*
10:14 luisrodr Ok
10:28 gerolamo_ other than statistics
10:28 gerolamo_ is there other sorts of math branches used inside BioPerl ?
10:34 gerolamo_ luisrodr: ?
10:34 luisrodr hmmm
10:35 luisrodr May be in phylogenetics-related modules
10:36 luisrodr But more statistics-driven (e.g. boothstrap)
10:37 luisrodr A labmate is working in combinatory in assembly of short reads for his maths thesis, and some of that could be implemented in bioperl (actually, there should be some modules already, but I don't know the assembly-related modules)
10:38 luisrodr I can't think in further applications, but I'll try to remember and I'll tell you
10:55 gerolamo_ thanks
10:55 gerolamo_ do you have an email ?
