Sydney Brenner

South African biologist and Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2002.
It is now widely realized that nearly all the 'classical' problems of molecular biology have either been solved or will be solved in the next decade. The entry of large numbers of American and other biochemists into the field will ensure that all the chemical details of replication and transcription will be elucidated. Because of this, I have long felt that the future of molecular biology lies in the extension of research to other fields of biology, notably development and the nervous system.More Sydney Brenner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
