I was wondering how to go about starting an open source project for
doing routine biological problems? There is a plethora of scripts and
a fairly large biopython project to back up anyone who tried, these
however cater to the bioinformatics community and it loses the vast
majority of the wet-lab scientists. How can someone who is used to
writing small scripts and doing wet-lab work contribute to the open
source community? Starting software projects seems to be the domain of
people with much more experience and skill but there are some serious
needs by people who do not have the skills to upkeep any software
based project.
