It's that time of year again!

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) was one of the most remarkable men of his 
time. Scientist, inventor, statesman, Franklin freely and openly shared 
his ideas and refused to patent his inventions. It is the opinion of the 
founders of the Bioinformatics Organization, Inc. that he embodied the 
best traits of a scientist, and we seek to honor those who share these 

The ``Benjamin Franklin Award in Bioinformatics'' is a humanitarian 
award presented annually by this organization to an individual who has, 
in his or her practice, promoted free and open access to the methods and 
materials used in the scientific field of bioinformatics.

Past laureates include Lincoln Stein (2004), Jim Kent (2003) and Michael 
Eisen (2002).
