U.S. scientist Frances H. Arnold, fellow American George P. Smith and British scientist Sir Gregory P. Winter were awarded on Wednesday with the 2018 Nobel Chemistry Prize for "the directed evolution of enzymes" and for "the phage display of peptides and antibodies."
Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah.
"This year's Nobel Laureates in Chemistry have been inspired by the power of evolution and used the same principles – genetic change and selection – to develop proteins that solve mankind's chemical problems," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement on awarding the 9 million Swedish crown ($1 million) prize.
Arnold won one half of the 9 million prize money, while Smith and Winter shared the other half.
Chemistry is the third of this year's Nobels and comes after the prizes for Medicine and Physics were awarded earlier this week.
