- The organizers of the RECOMB ISCB DREAM Conference were saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Tony Pawson. A special tribute to his legacy is planned for the 2013 conference where Dr. Pawson was to be a featured keynote speaker.

Our thoughts are with his friends and colleagues during this difficult time.
