Sydney Brenner showed that mRNA was the unstable intermediate that carried the message from DNA to the ribosomes.
Dr. Ewan Birney is a bioinformatician and worked on the Human Genome Project.

Mario Capecchi works on gene targeting at the University of Utah.
Gene targeting techniques are used by scientists to simulate human genetic disorders in model organisms. Many scientists believe that gene targeting will lead the way to new methods for correcting genetic defects.
Bob Horvitz and Mike Hengartner used C. elegans to work out the mechanism of programmed cell death.
Nobel Laureate John Sulston speaks about the relationships between organisms, and why one organism can be a good model for another.
