Warren Lyford DeLano passed away suddenly on November 3, 2009, at the age of 37[1]. A statement similar to the following was displayed on the Main Page of Proteopedia during the month following Dr. DeLano's passing:

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing on November 3rd, 2009, of Dr. Warren Lyford DeLano. Dr. DeLano was the brilliant software innovator who created PyMOL, widely used by structural biologists, and for creating images of macromolecular structures displayed in scientific journals. Through his software, and his engaging, supportive, and accessible personality, he forged a bond even with people across the world whom he had never met. His presence will be sorely missed by his friends and family and the crystallographic and molecular visualization communities.

Schrödinger took over development of PyMol after Warren DeLano's passing.

Creator of PyMOL, Founder of DeLano Scientific LLC. Details at:
