This was presented to Yoosook Lee from the School of Veterinary Medicine, UC Davis, for her article 'Ecological and genetic relationships of the Forest-M form among chromosomal and molecular forms of the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto'.

Genome Biology also gave a special award recognising the best article published in the journal during 2009, to mark its 10th anniversary. This was awarded to Ben Langmead, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, for his research 'Ultrafast and memory-efficient alignm
