ISCB is pleased
to announce the winners of this years ISMB Best Paper and
Best Poster Awards by SGI.
Pier Luigi Martelli took home best paper honors for A sequence
profile based HMM for predicting and discriminating beta barrel
membrane proteins. Co-authors included: Piero Fariselli, Anders
Krogh, and Rita Casadio.
Prior to ISMB, Martelli was selected as one of three finalists in
the best paper category. It was determinedby a subset of the
senior review committeethat Martelli should receive the award
for best paper based on his written paper and oral presentation
a pool of over 500were selected to receive Best Poster honors.
ISMB delegates selected the best poster winners. The winners selected
