"Jim Kent's office looks like any other: a solitary computer, a tiny window, stacks of books on listing shelves.

But this little room, in his garage, functions as a pilgrimage site for leaders in genetics. It's the site where Kent, sometimes called the "genome's unlikely superman," worked day and night under the watchful eye of colleagues to sew together the scattered pieces of the human genome."

"Ben Franklin is remembered for his many great ideas, inventions, and accomplishments. In presenting this year's Ben Franklin Award on behalf of Bioinformatics.Org, J.W. Bizarro reminded us that Franklin also refused to profit from many of his ideas and instead made them freely available. Bizarro pointed out that Jim Kent, this year's recipient of the award, embodies those characteristics in his work, which includes creating a browser for the human genome that is used by many thousands of biomedical researchers every day.

"You've got to admire a man who will flirt with lightning," Kent begins."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
