The Chemical Heritage Foundation and the Biotechnology Industry Organization said last week that they will present the 6th annual Biotechnology Heritage Award to Leroy Hood, president and cofounder of the Institute for Systems Biology. The presentation will be made on June 7, at BIO 2004 in San Francisco. CHF and BIO are honoring Hood for his role in developing automated sequencing technology. “Without his contribution, the sequencing of the human genome could have taken years or even decades longer,” said Arnold Thackray, president of CHF, in a statement.
