Three Nobel Prize Winners

Today, my father sent me an e-mail to my Blackberry. He urged me to read an article about three scients who won the 2007 Noble Prize in medicine yesterday. I finally fired up my computer and went to The New York Times and found this article.

The winners are Mario R. Capecchi, 70, Oliver Smithies, 82, and Sir Martin J. Evans, 66, of Cardiff University in Wales.

They have developed the knockout technique that allowed researchers to use tool to find out what gene does, especially with the mice. They can observe what can happen to the mice.

The article also covered a brief biography of each scientist. Congratulations to them!!
