Milestones in Molecular Biology:

Nobel Laurates Badge

Since its inauguration in 1901, the Nobel Prize has been awarded to individuals, teams and organizations for outstanding achievements in the fields of chemistry, physiology or medicine, physics, literature, economics and peace. As indicated by Alfred Nobel in his will, the Nobel Prize is established to recognize those who have "conferred the greatest benefit to mankind".

It is our great honor to have published the works more than 490 Nobel Laureates. This prestigious accolade conferred on our authors reaffirms Wiley's commitment to publishing quality content for the benefit of the research and scholarly communities.

This is just a list of Nobel laureates who have contributed to the scientific knowledge of Biology, Biophysics and Biochemistry.  But there are thousands of scientists in all branches of science over the century and those who have contributed to the science of Biology; especially Molecular Biology and Gene Engineering are at pinnacle of biology.  We should know without proper knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics molecular biology would not have developed to this state of prominence.  The other contributors name has been sited elsewhere; the list is not complete; yet trying to incorporate names as many as possible with respect to Molecular Cell Biology.

Ten women have won the Nobel Prizes: Gerty Cori (1947), Rosalyn Yalow (1977), Barbara McClintock (1983), Rita Levi-Montalcini (1986), Gertrude B. Elion (1988), Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard (1995), Linda B. Buck (2004), Françoise Barré-Sinoussi (2008), Elizabeth H. Blackburn (2009) and Carol W. Greider (2009).[8] As of 2010, the prize has been awarded to 196 individuals. There have been nine years in which the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was not awarded (1915–1918, 1921, 1925, 1940–1942).

 Note:  The list is of the people who have been recognized by the NOBEL committee;  but behind them there are/were many scholars remain unquoted or quoted and recognized by their work and worth; e.x. Donhue- who gave the clue to J.D.Watson about the tautomeric nature of ‘Bases’ in DNA, Miss Franklin provides the X-ray diffraction photo of the DNA; Dr. G. Ramachandra IISc,  protein structural plot–now it is well known as G. Ramachandran plot.


List of Nobel laureates by country

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Laureates of the Nobel Prize listed by country: Listings for Economics refer to the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. In contrast to the Nobel Prize, this award does not originate from the legacy of Alfred Nobel, but was founded by the Swedish central bank in 1968. The Nobel prize has been awarded 829 times, whereof 23 awards are affiliated with organizations.[1]

The present list ranks laureates under the country/countries that are stated by the Nobel Prize committee on its website.[2] The list does not distinguish between laureates who got a full prize and the majority who got just a fraction of a prize.[3] Some laureates are listed under more than one country, because the official website mentions multiple countries in relation to the laureate.[4] If a country is merely mentioned as the place of birth, an asterisk(*) is used in the respective listing to indicate this.[5] In this case, the birth country is mentioned in italics at the other listings of this laureate. For the same award, two birth place related listings occur when the place of birth is currently in a different country then at the time of birth. Laureate–country connections that are not mentioned at the official website are not considered in this list.

Organizations are listed here if the Nobel Prize committee relates them to a single country.
