The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna for the development of a method for genome editing. The two scientists have discovered one of gene technology’s sharpest tools named the CRISPR/Cas9 genetic scissors, using which the DNA of animals, plants, and microorganisms can be changed precisely. Charpentier and Doudna became the sixth and seventh women to win a Nobel for chemistry.
