  1. Congratulations to Mr. Sancar for his works how DNA repairs itself when encountering UV. He mapped this and gave one the greatest benefits to humankind. Thus, he deserved this honor and inspired Turkish scientist who live in Turkey. Thank you so much.

  2. Very important discovery!

    All 3 prizes this year are rightly chosen. I hope Nobel committee maintain this standard even in future. It is preferable not to award anyone than awarding mediocre discoveries. This year discoveries are fantastic.
