On This Day In Chemistry

October 26th

American biochemist Arthur Kornberg died on this day in 2007

He shared the 1959 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering the mechanism of how deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) replicates in biological systems, and many of the enzymes and building blocks required along the pathway. These findings were fundamental to our understanding of genetics.
