Continuous Integration for all biological applications inside Debian
Description of the project: The Debian Med project has packaged a lot of http://blends.debian.org/med/tasks/bio. Some of these are containing a test suite but we want to approach a 100% coverage to increase the quality of those bio tools. In this project as many as possible autopkgtests should be added.
Confirmed Mentor: Andreas Tille
How to contact the mentor: firstname.lastname@example.org
Confirmed co-mentors: other members of Debian Med team
Deliverables of the project: autopkgtests for biological packages of Debian Med team.
Desirable skills: The student should have a background in bioinformatics. Debian packaging skills are an extra plus but can be taught in the project run.
What the student will learn: Detailed insight into the bioinformatic tools inside Debian, Comparing and benchmarking biotools, Debian packaging skills, Writing tests
