@greenify I want to fix some bugs. I have been previously using Javascript libraries. Right now I am learning core(plain) javascript. From where should I start contributing because BioJs has a lot to contribute on. I am good at CSS.

@prasunanand I want to emphasis the edu page! As you might have noticed, the EDU page needs some css styling. It started as a quick and dirty solution to engage people into biojs 2.0 but haven't change since. Especially a more compelling frontend would be nice (see http://trackingjs.com/)

I can't do the backend then as I know just PHP and Django. I will stick with frontend currently.

ehm you can be creative ;-)
afaik one problem currently is that somehow the CSS dependencies between biojs.net / biojs.io and /edu got messed up - ideally we would have one main css which defines a "common style", right?
