The International Society for Computational Biology named Steven E. Brenner of the University of California, Berkeley as the winner of the 2010 Overton prize. The prize is awarded to a scientist in the early to mid stage of his or her career. The 2010 ISCB Accomplishment by a Senior Scientist award went to Chris Sander of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York. The award recognizes members of the computational biology community who are more than 12 to 15 years post-degree.

Both honorees received their awards after delivering keynote lectures at the 2010 Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology conference held in Boston last week.
