Nobel Prize In Chemistry
The 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry honors three scientists for the discovery and development of green fluorescent protein (GFP). This protein and mutated versions of it have become powerful tools for tagging and observing other proteins in cells. Osamu Shimomura, Martin Chalfie, and Roger Y. Tsien will equally share the $1.4 million prize.
GFP has been "just as useful as the invention of the microscope," says Marc Zimmer, . . .
