David Haussler, a leader in bioinformatics worldwide, was one of the first computer science researchers to apply statistical machine learning to biology. This work culminated in his team's contribution to the assembly pipeline for the publicly funded International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium. To his many prestigious awards in both the AI and scientific communities, he recently added Carnegie Mellon University's 2006 Dickson Prize for Science. The CMU faculty grant the prize annually to the person they judge to have made the most progress in a scientific field in the US.
