Phillip Allen Sharpe is an American molecular biologist who was awarded the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Richard J. Roberts for his independent discovery that individual genes are often interrupted by long segments of DNA that do not encode. protein structure. According to the Nobel quote, their “discovery” changed our view of how genes in higher organisms evolved during evolution. The discovery also led to the prediction of a new genetic process, the insertion required to express genetic information. »The discovery of split genes is essential for today’s fundamental research in biology as well as research into the development of cancer and other diseases.
