Nobel’06

October 5, 2006

Well, Am linking to my blogphysica post on 2006 physics Nobel prize.

And since this is not a blog confined to physics, I will also link to the Nobel prize announcement in Physiology or medicine and chemistry.

Frankly, I have trouble distinguishing which is which from the citations alone🙂 And I’m not alone *…
Try guessing – a Nobel has been given to Roger D. Kornberg “for his studies of the molecular basis of eukaryotic transcription” and a Nobel has been given to Andrew Z. Fire and Craig C. Mello “for their discovery of RNA interference – gene silencing by double-stranded RNA”.

And I’m late as usual, but should wish Happy Birthday to the one who deserved the Nobel(but didn’t get it) – anyway, as Einstein remarked “Generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood”.

* If you’re further interested in the question “Is it chemistry ? “, you should have a look here and here(might need a subscription).
