SciVee’s cofounder, Phil Bourne, recently won the 2009 Benjamin Franklin Award. Bio-IT World announced, “The annual award, presented by the Bioinformatics Organization, is given to a scientist who epitomizes the open-source values espoused by the legendary inventor and statesman. Bourne will be presented with his award by Jeff Bizzaro, president of Bioinformatics.org, at the 2009 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston on Tuesday, April 28.”
Bio-IT World continues, “Bourne was nominated for his numerous and varied contributions to both open access in bioinformatics and computational biology as well as his innovations with the Protein Data Bank. A past president of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), Bourne is the founding editor-in-chief of PLoS Computational Biology, one of the open-access journals launched by the Public Library of Science. In just four years, the journal has become the highest impact factor journal in the niche of mathematical and computational biology.”
Bio-IT World goes on to share comments made by a few nominators and to state that Bourne is also a co-founder of the website SciVee.tv. To read further, see the Bio-IT World article.
The SciVee team is proud to send a hearty congratulations to Phil!
