"The Open Lab of Bioinformatics.org has a custom installation of the SourceForge project management system, the same system that is hosting more than 6,000 generic, Open Source projects at SourceForge.net."

"Bioinformatics.org is a non-profit, academe-based organization committed to opening access to bioinformatics research projects, providing Open Source software for bioinformatics by hosting its development, and keeping biological information freely available. We are a community focused on the freedom of information as it pertains to the biosciences."

"With the addition of the SourceForge system, Bioinformatics.org offers a cornucopia of services to the developers of Open Source bioinformatics software: advanced Web-based administrative tools, providing easy maintenance for all aspects of your project; an SSH account that provides basic shell functions, your own crontab, and access to your HTTP directory; a Web site for your project; quota-less drive space (within reason); access to the MySQL DBMS from your shell account and Web directory; the Mailman mailing list manager; your own CVS modules, available anonymously to the outside world; a Web interface for examining CVS modules; full read/write access to your own FTP directory, available anonymously to the outside world; the Wiki documentation system; an e-mail address for yourself: yourname@bioinformatics.org; and more!"
