Hurray for Haussler

The University of California, Santa Cruz's David Haussler has won Oxford University's 2011 Weldon Memorial Prize for his work "using computers to tackle complex problems in biology," the Santa Cruz Sentinel reports. Established in 1911, the prize is awarded in honor of Oxford's Walter Weldon, and consists of a medal and prize lecture to be given at the university. In a statement, Haussler said that "this prize was given to many of my heroes, so I'm very honored and will have a hard time living up to this."
