If you want to honor some innovative scientists, the International Society for Computational Biology is accepting nominations for its yearly awards. The Overton Prize goes to early to mid-career scientists who have contributed to computational biology and the Senior Scientist Prize goes to people who are more than 12 years into their career. Last year's winners were Aviv Regev and David Haussler, respectively. The 2009 nomination form can be found here.
