"The Outercurve Foundation announced its acceptance of the .Net Bio project into the foundation's Research Accelerators Gallery. Formerly known as the Microsoft Biology Foundation, .Net Bio is a language-neutral, reusable .NET library and API that supports the development of applications for bioinformatics research. It is the fourth project contributed to the gallery. The open-source project has the support of bioinformatics researchers from a number of educational institutions, foundation officials said.

"The Research Accelerators Gallery hosts open-source projects that support the development of tools and technologies used by academic researchers and scientists. Working within the gallery, .Net Bio contributors will be able to increase the project's focus on improving community-development practices to broaden the capabilities and usefulness of .Net Bio to the life sciences community, the foundation said."
