Last year the Nobel Prizes hit the big 1-0-0. Don't worry if you forgot to send a card or couldn't make it to Stockholm for the shindig. This Web site from the Nobel Foundation features video of all 21 speakers at December's centennial symposium on how genomics is revolutionizing fields from developmental biology to medicine to evolution. Follow along as evolutionary biologist Svante Pääbo explains how unraveling the genomes of nonhuman organisms will illuminate our origins. Or listen to one of the 1985 laureates in medicine, Michael Brown, describe how genes influence cholesterol levels. The lectures provide scientists and students with a glimpse at the future of these fields.
