 US Duo and Israeli Win Nobel Chemistry Prize

Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas Steitz of the US and Israel's Ada Yonath on Wednesday won the Nobel Chemistry Prize for their studies on the ribosome, the Nobel jury said.

The trio were honoured for "mapping the ribosome -- one of the cell's most complex machineries -- at the atomic level," it said.
