ABSTRACT
Michel, Hartmut (1948-), a German biochemist, was the first to successfully crystallize a molecule important in photosynthesis. He shared the 1988 Nobel Prize in chemistry with his collagues Robert Huber and Johann Deisenhofer for determining the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction center. Their discovery was an important advance in the study of giant molecules involved in living processes. In 1985, they identified and placed more than 10,000 atoms in the molecule.
