Frederick Sanger is a British biochemist who was twice the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, the only person to have been so. In 1958 he was awarded a Nobel prize in chemistry "for his work on the structure of proteins, especially that of insulin". In 1980, Walter Gilbert and Sanger shared half of the chemistry prize. He is the fourth (and only living) person to have been awarded two Nobel Prizes, either individually or in tandem with others.
Frederick Sanger, a biochemist of British origin and a double Noble Prize Awardee, who decoded the process of sequencing of DNA , has died. His pioneering work helped understanding genetics with new perspective.
