The internet search engine and technology giant Google marks Noble prize victor Indian American scientist Har Gobind Khorana's 96th birth anniversary with a sketch doodle.
Dr. Khorana then spent time at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule in Zurich with Professor Vladimir Prelog, returned to India for a brief period and then back to England where his interest in proteins and nucleic acids came to fruition in Cambridge. There, he decoded how cells read the language of RNA written in structures represented by the letters A, C, U, and G. He did this by using enzymes to create sequences of these letters.
The words code instructions for arranging amino acids, the basic units of proteins. He received the Noble Prize in 1968 for Physiology or Medicine. Khorana was also the first scientist to chemically synthesize oligonucleotides.
Har Gobind Khorana took his last breath in 2011 in MA at the age of 89. In 1978 Dr. Khorana was elected as Foreign Member of the Royal Society.
