Respected Sir,

I am interested in applying for the proposed openSNP project under your guidance. I am currently in first year MSc bioinformatics from INDIA (Manipal university). I want to know how to proceed further. Thankyou.

Regards, Eshwari.

Hi Eshwari! I'm afraid this post is 3 years old, our GSoC project ended a long time ago!

However, this round of GSoC will be announced in 3 weeks: I'm sure there'll be many bioinformatics projects again this year, good luck!!
