Hello all!

        My name is Hovakim Grabski. I am Ph.D. student at the department of Medical Biochemistry and Biotechnology at Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University.I hold a specialist's degree in Bioengineering and Bioinformatics from the Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University. This summer, I am being mentored by Dr.Frank T, Bergmann and  Dr. Andreas Dräger, both part of the NRNB. My project  focuses on  Deviser,which  is   a   new   code   generation   system   being   developed to facilitate   the   development   of  SBML   L3   packages   by   helping   to   automate   the generation   of   specifications,   UML   diagrams   and   library   code   as   well   as   to   provide   a fast,   efficient   means   of   changing   both   API   code   and   specification   documentation   to facilitate   the   update   of   documentation   and   implementation   necessary   as   the   package itself   evolves.   The   code   generator   currently   targets   ​ libSBML   only and  the   goal   is   to extend   Deviser's   code   generator   to   produce   Java   code   that   can   be   integrated   into JSBML​,   the   pure   Java   API   library   for   SBML.   This   will   allow   Deviser   to   target   both libSBML   and   JSBML​ (​https://github.com/sbmlteam/deviser​)

I am very enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with Dr. Bergmann  and Dr. Dräger and the rest of the NRNB and SBML team. I am sure that it will be a great summer.
