Donna of the United States. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the names of the chemists on Wednesday. According to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, they were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry this year for inventing a new method for gene editing. Together they have created the technology that is most effective in gene technology; Its name is CRISPRS or CAS9 genetic knife. Using it, researchers can easily change the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms. Earlier last year, Frances H. Arnold and George P. Smith, American chemists, and Sir Gregory P. Winter, a British chemist, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their research on the production of enzymes for new chemicals and the creation of an environmentally friendly industry. Meanwhile, Oxford University physicist Roger Penrose, American astronomer Reinhard Gengel and German physicist Andrea Gheztin have won the Nobel Prize in Physics this year for their new discovery of the black hole, one of the wonders of the universe. On Tuesday, the Royal Swedish Academy announced the winners of this year's Nobel Prize in Physics. Last Monday, two American scientists, Harvey J. Alter and Charles M. Rice, and British scientist Michael Houghton, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their significant contributions to the discovery and treatment of the hepatitis C virus. The Nobel Prize is awarded each year in recognition of new inventions, research and outstanding contributions to the well-being of the human race. The Nobel Prize in Science, Literature and Peace has been awarded since 1901 at the behest of Alfred Nobel, a Swedish businessman and dynamite inventor.
