I knew about the insulin molecule but not abot the base sequence of nucleic acids. It really helped me. Thanks.

In 1901 the first prize for chemistry was awarded to Jacob's H. Van't Hoff. The first prize for literature was awarded to sully prudhomme. First prize for medicine was awarded to Emil Von Behring Henry Dunant and Frederic Passy were both awarded first prizes for peace. And the first prize for physics was awarded to Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen. In1969 Ragnar Frisch & Jan Tinbergen won the first noble prizes for economics.

Frederick Sanger, OM, CH, CBE, FRS, FAA (born 13 August 1918, Rendcomb) is a British biochemist who was twice the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, the only person to have been so. In 1958 he was awarded a Nobel prize in chemistry "for his work on the structure of proteins, especially that of insulin". In 1980, Walter Gilbert and Sanger shared half of the chemistry prize "for their contributions concerning the determination of base sequences in nucleic acids". The other half was awarded to Paul Berg "for his fundamental studies of the biochemistry of nucleic acids, with particular regard to recombinant-DNA".
