    We are happy to announce that the members of have chosen by vote Desmond Higgins of the University College Dublin (UCD) Conway Institute as the laureate of the 2018 Benjamin Franklin Award for Open Access in the Life Sciences!

    The Higgins lab has developed the CLUSTAL series of multiple sequence alignment tools, which are among the very first bioinformatics tools used by any student and are fundamental to the field, so it's very much an honor for us to recognize Des for his contribution.
