ISMB Killer App Award


The ISMB 2011 Killer App Award is awarded for the individual or team with a tool or system judged to be of most practical benefit to biochemists and/or molecular biologists.

To be eligible for the Killer App Award, a system or tool must be fully functional, and must be presented at the ISMB conference as a poster (see Criteria for details).

Applications for the Killer App Award are completed as part of ISMB poster registration, with the same submission deadline.

Submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges from biochemistry, molecular biology, bioinformatics, and from industry. Three or four finalists are invited to give a short talk about their application at ISMB 2011. The winner will be announced in the closing ceremony, and will receive a certificate from the ISMB/ISCB plus an Apple iPad.

Chairs: Sean O’Donoghue, Anita de Waard, Thomas Abeel, Venkata Satagopam, Lawrence Hunter

Additional Judges: Karima Djabli, Andrea Schafferhans, Pieder Caduff
