Congratulations to Frances H. Arnold for her Nobel prize in chemistry! Arnold developed a method for using directed evolution to modify enzymes for our needs. The procedure is very similar to the solution to challenge "Breeding II" so I will describe in some details what she and did in her seminal w...

@Alast, haha, was it even announced yet when i wrote? Anyways, she got the prize for evolution of enzymes (much like the breeding II challenge), whereas Winter and Smith got it for phage display.

Congratulations to Arthur Ashkin—the inventor of optical tweezers—for getting one half of this years Nobel prize in physics!

Well deserved prize considering how much use we have of them :D.
