Telomerase discovery: The excitement of putting together pieces of the puzzle (Nobel lecture)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Secrets revealed: The Nobel Prize for Medicine 2009 was awarded for the solution to one of the greatest mysteries of biology: how are chromosomes copied upon cell division and protected from degradation? The answer can be found at the ends of the chromosomes-the telomeres-and in the enzyme that forms them-telomerase. The laureates describe the events leading to the discovery first-hand.
