21 Sep Science Tuition Presents Frederick Sanger
Hi and welcome back to Science Tuition. Hope we are helping you become more competent in chemistry.
Keeping up with the pace, in this Science Tuition lesson we are going to learn about one more famous chemist. Let us see whose door we are knocking on today.
It is Frederick Sanger. He was born on 13 August 1918. He was a British biochemist who has won the Nobel Prize in chemistry twice. He got his first Nobel Prize for his work on the structure of proteins, especially that of insulin and for his second Nobel, he shared his prize with Walter Gilbert for the work on the determination of base sequences in nucleic acids. He determined the complete amino acid sequence and proved that proteins have a defined chemical composition.
That is all for today on Science Tuition. Stay tuned to learn more of such chemistry information.
