Funding for continued GENESIS development

Last week we learned that GENESIS 3 development will receive additional funding. This funding was requested in the form of an administrative supplement to the original GENESIS 3 grant a couple of weeks ago. The money will be used to accelerate the development of documentation specific to GENESIS 3.

It is indeed a shame that there is so much software there, in the form of Neurospaces software components and software components specific to GENESIS 3, but it is still a mystery how to record channel response from a voltage clamp protocol, just one example. Not that this is difficult to do, there is actually a test case for it, but it is just hidden for users who are new to this system (meaning almost everybode out there).

The money of the administrative supplement should come in soon, in a couple of weeks. Both regular documentation, additional documentation infrastructure and tutorials will be developed.
