Summary

Half of this year's Nobel Prize in chemistry went to John Fenn of Virginia Commonwealth University and Koichi Tanaka of Shimadzu Corp., who independently developed techniques to ionize large molecules such as proteins. Kurt Wüthrich of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology received the other half for developing nuclear magnetic resonance techniques that reveal the molecules' shapes.
