Faculty Award: Botstein shares 2013 Warren Alpert Prize for genome research

COURTESY OF PRINCETON UNIVERSITY, OFFICE OF COMMUNICATIONS

David Botstein, Princeton University's Anthony B. Evnin '62 Professor of Genomics and director of the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, is a recipient of the 2013 Warren Alpert Foundation Prize in recognition for his work that helped establish a framework for the Human Genome Project. Botstein shares the $250,000 prize with Stanford University School of Medicine faculty members Ronald Davis and David Hogness. In 1980, Botstein and Davis published a conceptual breakthrough that gave researchers the tools to trace and map out the genetic inheritance of disease in humans. Hogness' work provided the means of identifying the precise physical location of genes of interest on chromosomes. The recipients will be honored at a symposium on Thursday, Oct. 3, at Harvard Medical School.
