Celebrating the Nobel Prize in Chemistry

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2015 to Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich, and Aziz Sancar for mechanistic studies of DNA repair. “Their work has provided fundamental knowledge of how a living cell functions and is, for instance, used for the development of new cancer treatments,” the Royal Swedish Academy of Science reports. The three scientists honored have mapped how several repair systems of DNA, which is unstable and susceptible to thousands of spontaneous biological changes each day, function at “a detailed molecular level.” Taylor & Francis and the Chemistry Arena extend our congratulations to the Nobel Laureates and thank them for their work.

We are pleased to celebrate this year's Nobel Prize announcement by sharing previously published papers coauthored by one of the Laureates, Aziz Sancar. Below his research, which appeared in the journal Cell Cycle, we also acknowledge the impact of the research opportunities opened up by all three Nobel Laureates' work. Please enjoy free access to papers from our other journals which have been influenced by and comment on the mapping of DNA repair.
