Clearly his entrepreneurial vision, ability to surround himself by extremely competent people and openness to new techniques such as phage display makes him a worthy victor of this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry. "In their laboratories, our laureates this year have been able to direct evolution, to steer it, which has led to new chemical tools that can be used in everything from environmentally friendly detergents to the creation of new biofuels and pharmaceuticals".
Smith, 77, developed a method to evolve new proteins and Winter used the method to evolve antibodies, which are disease-fighting proteins in the blood.
Meanwhile, both Winter and Smith won for work related to phage display.
Winter later used this method to direct the evolution of antibodies to create pharmaceutical drugs.
The other half will be jointly split between George Smith from the University of Missouri, US and Gregory Winter from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in the United Kingdom who developed a technique called phage display. In this process, viruses that can infect bacteria, known as bacteriophages, are used to produce new proteins that are not believed to exist in nature.
"This year's Chemistry laureates have taken control of evolution and used it for purposes that bring the greatest benefit to humankind".
Arnold, just the fifth woman to clinch chemistry's most prestigious honour since Marie Curie was honoured in 1911, won one half of the nine million Swedish kronor (about $1.01 million or 870,000 euros) award, while Smith and Winter shared the other half. "Virtually all of them build on what went on before", he said.
George P. Smith was born in 1941 in Norwalk, Connecticut, and he's now at the University of Missouri, in Columbia, in the United States. Arnold got involved in biotechnology, through a Berkeley group called the Center for Biotechnology Research, and ended up doing her Ph.D. work on affinity chromatography, a relatively new technique for precisely separating proteins based on their affinity for another molecule, such as an antibody.
This was the 110th Nobel Prize awarded for chemistry since 1901. She then selected the cases where a particular mutation proved useful - for example, allowing the enzyme to work in a solvent it would otherwise not work in.
According to Jennifer Curtis, associate professor of physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, "awards beget awards... one important way to promote female physicists is to make sure to nominate them". Allison on winning the Nobel Prize after receiving the KFP this year.
