Nobel update

The 2006 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Roger D. Kornberg from Stanford,

for his studies of the molecular basis of eukaryotic transcription”.

I don’t remember seeing that pick made in any of the recent blog entries on the subject.

And at least one blogger out there is upset about how “the shoe-horning of biology into the chemistry prize continues”.


Thanks to Bethany at Chemical & Engineering News for letting me know about this story she wrote a couple of years ago about the fuzzy boundaries of the Chemistry Nobel.
