Date:2/16/2011

as a stunning technical achievement and it will continue to be referenced and studied for years to come."

The Green, Reich, and Paabo paper, "A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome" can be found online at http://bit.ly/eP8Ju5. (Please note that the article is freely accessible, but initial registration may be required.)

The prize was established in 1923 with funds donated by Newcomb Cleveland of New York City and was originally called the AAAS Thousand Dollar Prize. It is now known as the AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize, and its value has been raised to $25,000. The winner also receives a bronze medal, complimentary registration and reimbursement for reasonable travel and hotel expenses to attend the AAAS Annual Meeting. Eligible Science papers include original research data, theory, or synthesis. They should represent a fundamental contribution to basic knowledge, or a technical achievement of far-reaching consequence. Winning nominations also should be a first-time publication of the author's own work.

The 2009-2010 Newcomb Cleveland Prize Selection Committee included the Science Editor-in-Chief as well as John I. Brauman of Stanford University, Brooks Hanson, Science Deputy Editor, Physical Sciences, Andrew Sugden, Science Deputy Editor, Biological Sciences, Michael S. Turner of the University of Chicago and the Science Senior Editorial Board, and AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner, executive publisher of Science.

The Newcomb Cleveland Price will be awarded in the Grand Ballroom North, Washington Renaissance Downtown, on Saturday, 19 February at 6:00 p.m.
