The DeLano Award for Computational Biosciences is a prize in the field of computational biology. It is awarded annually for "the most accessible and innovative development or application of computer technology to enhance research in the life sciences at the molecular level".[1]

The prize was established by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) in memory of Warren Lyford DeLano, an American bioinformatician. DeLano developed the PyMOL open source molecular viewer software and was an advocate for the increased adoption of open source practices in the sciences. DeLano died unexpectedly in 2009.[2]

Laureates include the Nobel Prize winner Michael Levitt, who was awarded the prize in 2014 for his work in computational bioscience, including the Rosetta protein-modelling software.[3]
