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”.
