thumbnail image

Dr Frederick Sanger, the British biochemist and molecular biologist, was one of only four people - and the only biological scientist - to win the Nobel Prize twice. The first (1958) was for his work on the sequence of amino acids in insulin. He then worked on the molecular structure of nucleic acids.The second (1980, shared with the American biochemists Paul Berg and Walter Gilbert), was for developing the dideoxy sequencing method for determining the chemical structure of pieces of DNA. He also made significant contributions to sequencing RNA. Dr Sanger talks about his life, work and ideas and his many collaborators.
