GSoC Students Do Cool JBrowse Projects

I’m pleased to introduce two Google Summer of Code students who are working actively on Jbrowse projects:

Pubudu Dodangoda is working on a social commenting extension for gene features.

Saksham Saxena is working a module to manage synthetic chromosomes through GitHub.

Pubudu is a student of Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Moratuwa. He is planning to continue studies in the areas of Web app/service development primarily with technologies such as JS, ES2015, AngularJs, ReactJs, NodeJs etc,  Human Computer Interaction(HCI), machine learning, Bioinformatics and concurrent programming.
Pubudu plays table tennis and enjoys music during his free times. He used to do some photoshop work some time back but kind of stopped it due to the workload of final year project and all. He was also a teaching assistant for ‘communication skills’ module during the last semester and worked as an intern at WSO2 last year.
Saksham is attending Delhi Technological University, pursuing Bachelor’s of Technology in Engineering Physics. Presently in third year.
Saksham is an audiophile, science, technology and philosophy indulgent who drives to live, and is an occasional poet.
