The Overton Prize was established by the ISCB in memory of G. Christian Overton, a major contributor to the field of bioinformatics and member of the ISCB Board of Directors who died unexpectedly in 2000. The annual prize is awarded for outstanding accomplishment to a scientist in the early to mid stage of his or her career, with a guideline of up to a decade post degree, who has already made a significant contribution to the field of computational biology either through research, education, service, or a combination of the three.
