Dear all:

Some of you may have noticed a service here at Bioinformatics.org (http://www.bioinformatics.org/banners), which provides a way for web masters to advertise their websites, provided they run a non-profit site related to biology or medicine. In its heyday, this project generated more than 800K hits per month, and was moderately successful. I started BioBanner when PHP version 3 was still around, and in recent years I have slowly moved away from this project. A lot has changed since then both in web site advertising and web-based application programming.

I am writing here in hope that someone would be interested in taking over this project, improve and modernize it, and inject his/her own fresh ideas that will stimulate its growth again. I know that it is not a project about bioinformatics, but BioBanner served for many years to spread word especially about bioinformatics. I think it would be a fun side project for a any programmer who masters PHP, SQL, and Javascript, and who is also interested in promotion of science.

We at Bioinformatics.Org will try to provide you with all the support we can and will be especially happy if you decided to integrate this service with BiO web site. If you are interested please contact me or president of Bioinformatics.Org, Jeff Bizzaro.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Martin Kucej
BioBanner founder
