Sanger, Frederick

(1918-) English biochemist who carried out extensive research into protein structure and determined the amino acid sequence of insulin, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1958. He also developed methodology for DNA SEQUENCING and determined the entire nucleotide sequence of a viral DNA for which he shared a second Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1980.

Frederick Sanger, tomando en consideracion lo reportado por Meselson y Stahl, desarrolla un metodo de secuenciacion de pequenos fragmentos de ADN cuyo enfoque diferencial, frente a la propuesta de Maxan y Gilbert que era eminentemente quimica y tomaba al menos un dia, fue la utilizacion de sintesis enzimatica de la cadena complementaria del fragmento de ADN a secuenciar.
In 2003, 454 Life Sciences sequenced the adenovirus genome in less than one day and submitted the completed sequence to GenBank, becoming the first to develop a new method and to successfully complete a whole genome sequence since Walter Gilbert and Frederick Sanger won the Nobel Prize in 1980 for the invention of DNA sequencing.
The timeline arguably dates back to 1955, the year a Nobel Prize-winning British biochemist named Frederick Sanger first sequenced the protein bovine insulin.
The only others to have received more than one Nobel Prize are Marie Curie (Physics 1903, Chemistry 1911), Linus Pauling (Chemistry 1954, Peace 1962), John Bardeen (Physics 1956, 1972), Frederick Sanger (Chemistry 1958, 1980) and the UN High Commission for Refugees (Peace 1954, 1981).
