Swedish geneticist who discovered the hominin genome – human evolution” Sewing Nobel Medical this year
Swedish geneticist – On October 3, AP reported that the committee Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine at the Karolinska Institute Stockholm, Sweden, announces the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Swante Pabo Dr Swedish geneticist From the discovery of the hominin genome, or all extinct human species including human evolution
Dr Pabo created a new field of science based on genome analysis. by revealing the genetic differences that distinguish living humans from extinct hominins. And that discovery lays the foundation for exploring what makes modern humans unique.
Dr. Everyone has achieved what seemed impossible. by sequencing the Neanderthal genome, an extinct relative of modern humans. The extinct hominin of the Denisovan species was also discovered with genomic data extracted from finger bone samples.
Gene transfer was found to occur from extinct hominins and then passed on to human Homo sapiens. The transfer of genes from ancient humans to humans that are now physiologically relevant, such as the transfer of the immune system in response to infection.
Dr Pabo will receive a joint prize money of 10 million Swedish kronor, or about 34.2 million baht, along with a gold medal and Nobel certificate of 18k.
