ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the Nobel Prize in Chemistry and its relevance to antibiotic design. For 2009, the Nobel Prize was awarded to researchers Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Thomas A. Steitz and Ada E. Yonath for their study on the structure and function of the ribosome. Ribosome is a large ribonucleic acid (RNA)-protein complexes that connects life, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-genetic information and proteins. According to the author, the development of X-ray crystallography techniques is the major achievement related to ribosome.
