The deadline for submissions to the yearly iEvoBio Challenge is June 25, 2012, and is rapidly approaching! This is our last reminder. This year’s theme is "Synthesizing Phylogenies," and further information on criteria for challenge entries, how to submit them, and award amount can be found at http://ievobio.org/challenge.html.
Also, Biomatters Ltd is running the Geneious Challenge alongside iEvoBio’s competition. The goal of this challenge is to develop a new and exciting visualization or analysis plugin to Geneious Pro, using the public API. See http://ievobio.org/geneious_challenge.html for more information. The deadline for this competition is also June 25.
