A Tribute to Fred Sanger

Fred Sanger, the only scientist to win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry twice, died yesterday at the age of 95. Dr. Sanger is perhaps best known by molecular biologists for the discovery of the Sanger method for sequencing DNA. Although modern day sequencing has seen many advances in the past decade, Sanger’s”dideoxy” chain-termination method for sequencing DNA was the method of choice used by scientists involved in sequencing the human genome.

We have embedded the video below as a tribute to Dr. Sanger. The video is an interview of Dr. Sanger conducted several years ago in which he discusses his personal background and his life’s work.
