Ada E. Yonath

A women chemist who has contribute a lot to our knowledge of the "structure and function of the ribosome", she has impacted the world with her knowledge about ribosomes. From Israel and studied at Weizmann Institute of science to showing the world and opening new doors to the wold of ribosomes. She has also won the Noble prize in 2009 for chemistry. She also calculated the atomic structure of the small ribosome sub unit known as 30s, from the bacterium therms thermoplastics. The process involves firing x-rays at the target crystals of the studies compound, at the angel of different rays to calculate the atomic structure of the microscope target by mapping the position of every atom.

Ribosomes

"If proteins are the "building blocks" of life, then ribosomes are the factors that produce them. They are large, complex particles within each cell that translate the genetic information into tens of thousands of proteins, each with a specific task to perform with in the body".
