Extractions: Har Gobind Khorana attended D.A.V. High School in Multan (now West Punjab); Ratan Lal, one of his teachers, influenced him greatly during that period. Later, he studied at the Punjab University in Lahore where he obtained an M. Sc. degree. Mahan Singh, a great teacher and accurate experimentalist, was his supervisor. Khorana lived in India until 1945, when the award of a Government of India Fellowship made it possible for him to go to England and he studied for a Ph. D. degree at the University of Liverpool . Roger J. S. Beer supervised his research, and, in addition, looked after him diligently. It was the introduction of Khorana to Western civilization and culture.

Extractions: Har Gobind Khorana (b. Jan. 9, 1922, Raipur, India), Indian-born American biochemist who shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1968 with Marshall W. Nirenberg and Robert W. Holley for research that helped to show how the nucleotides in nucleic acids, which carry the genetic code of the cell, control the cell's synthesis of proteins. Khorana was born into a poor family and attended Punjab University at Lahore and the University of Liverpool, England, on government scholarships. He obtained his Ph.D. at Liverpool in 1948. He began research on nucleic acids during a fellowship at the University of Cambridge (1951) under Sir Alexander Todd. He held fellowships and professorships in Switzerland at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the universities of British Columbia, Can. (1952-59), and Wisconsin, U.S. In 1971 he joined the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the 1960s Khorana confirmed Nirenberg's findings that the way the four different types of nucleotides are arranged on the spiral "staircase" of the DNA molecule determines the chemical composition and function of a new cell. The 64 possible combinations of the nucleotides are read off along a strand of DNA as required to produce the desired amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Khorana added details about which serial combinations of nucleotides form which specific amino acids. He also proved that the nucleotide code is always transmitted to the cell in groups of three, called codons. Khorana also determined that some of the codons prompt the cell to start or stop the manufacture of proteins. Khorana made another contribution to genetics in 1970, when he and his research team were able to synthesize the first artificial copy of a yeast gene.

Extractions: Dr. Har Gobind Khorana:Biologist with a Vision Dr. Har Gobind Khorana, recipient of Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology along with Marshall Nirenberg and Robert Holley for cracking the genetic code, is a person with an unmatched perseverance and uncommon vision existent among scientists of this golden period. Dr.khorana and his team had established that the mother of all codes, the biological language common to all living organisms, is spelled out in three-letter words:each set of three nucleotides codes for a specific amino acid, in their Nobel lecture delivered on December 12,1968. Dr.Khorana was also the first to synthesize oligonucleotides, that is, strings of nucleotides. These custom designed pieces of artificial genes are widely used in biology labs for sequencing, cloning and engineering new plants and animals.Dr.khorana's invention of oligonucleotides has become indispensable tools in biotechnology. This invention of DrKhorana has become mechanized and commercialize that anyone now can order the synthetic genes just he needs to fax the genetic sequence. Dr.Khorana , born in Raipur, in Punjab, India in 1922, received his B.Sc and M.Sc degrees from the Punjab University in Lahore (in present day Pakistan) and his Ph.D. from the University of Liverpool, where he went in 1945 on a Government of India Fellowship. Dr. Khorana did his Post Doctoral fellowship in Zurich for period of 1948-49. He spent two years at Cambridge and his interests in proteins and nucleic acids took root that time. In 1952 he went to the University of British Columbia, Vancouver and in 1960 moved to the University of Wisconsin. He became the Alfred Sloan Professor of Biology and Chemistry at the

Har Gobind Khorana shared the 1968 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Robert W. Holley and Marshall W. Nirenberg "for their interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis." Khorana's birth date is recorded as January 9, 1922 in Raipur, India, now part of Pakistan. The son of a village agricultural taxation clerk, Khorana and his family were poor. Yet, because Khorana's parents made school a priority for their children, he was able to continue his education at Punjab University in Lahore, India, where he earned a B.Sc. with honors in 1943 and an M.Sc. with honors in 1945. He then received a Government of India Fellowship that gave him the opportunity to study at the University of Liverpool, England. He earned a Ph.D. degree in 1948 under Roger J. S. Beer. In the following year, he carried out postdoctoral research with Vladimir Prelog at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. From 1950-1952, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Cambridge University, working with Alexander Todd and G. W. Kenner. Here he began his work on proteins and nuclei acids.

Extractions: Marshall Nirenberg Har Gobind Khorana , and Robert Holley shared the 1968 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine. Nirenberg and Khorana cracked the genetic code. Holley sequenced and deduced the structure of the first tRNA molecule. MARSHALL WARREN NIRENBERG (1927-) Marshall Nirenberg was born in New York City. When he was 12, he and his family moved to Orlando, Florida. His early interest in bird-watching led him to the science of biology. Nirenberg was able to explore the diverse ecology of Florida's wetlands. He also benefited from the instruction provided by professionals - museum curators, biochemists - who were at nearby World War II training camps. In 1948, Nirenberg graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree. He stayed at the University of Florida to complete a Master's degree in Zoology on the ecology and taxonomy of caddis flies. Nirenberg then went to the University of Michigan and in 1957 finished his Ph.D. He had become more interested in the question of life itself and wanted to know the essence. His Ph.D. work on sugar transport in tumor cells reflected his interest in the chemistry of life. After his Ph.D., Nirenberg went to the

POLANYI (Chemistry, 1986) John Polanyi who was born in Berlin, Germany in 1929, migrated with his Hungarian parents to England in 1933. He did his university studies at Manchester University, earning his Ph.D. in 1952, the same year in which he came to Canada. He worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the National Research Council Laboratories in Ottawa from 1952-1954, and as a research associate at Princeton University from 1954-1956. In 1956 he joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto where he has remained every since. His research involved the development of a new field of research in chemistry-reaction dynamics-providing a much more detailed understanding of how chemical reactions take place. For this work, he shared the 1986 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. His ongoing research has earned him many other awards and honours, including, the Royal Medal of the Royal Society, and some thirty honorary degrees from six countries. Dr. Polanyi has served on the Prime Minister of Canada's Advisory Board on Science and Technology, and the Premier's Council of Ontario. An advocate of international human rights, he was a founding member of the Committee on Scholarly Freedom of the Royal Society, and the Canadian Committee for Scientists and Scholars, and the founding Chairman of the Canadian Pugwash Group in 1960. Dr. Polanyi has written extensively on science policy, the control of armaments, and peacekeeping.
