Bio4j accepted for Google Summer of Code 2014

We are really excited to announce that Bio4j has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2014. This was the first year we applied for it, and it feels just great being part of this inititative!

We think this is a great opportunity for students, giving them the opportunity to hack on pretty cool stuff around graph databases, bio big data and cloud computing.
