Madison Nobel Prize victor honored with today's Google Doodle

Dr. Khorana was born in Raipur, India which became part of Pakistan in the year 2000.

Remembering him, Banerjee tweeted: "Remembering Nobel laureate scientist Har Gobind Khorana on his birth anniversary". This is a representation of Dr. Har Gobind Khorana who today would have turned 96 years old.

In 1972, Khorana made another important scientific breakthrough when he built the first-ever synthetic gene. This work led to the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1968, which he shared with Robert Holley of Cornell University and Marshall Nirenberg of the National Institutes of Health.

Senate push to overturn FCC's net neutrality decision reaches important threshold
A University of Maryland poll last month found that 83% of Americans and 75% of Republicans said they supported them. It seems that state legislators are starting to take matters of net neutrality into their own hands.

He was also awarded the second highest civilian award of India, the Padma Vibhushan.

Explains, "In addition to developing methods for investigating the structure of the nucleic acids, Khorana introduced numerous techniques that allowed scientists to decipher the genetic code and show how ribonucleic acid (RNA ) can specify the structure of proteins".

Khorana came from humble beginnings.

Trump's Uneven National Anthem Performance Fuels Dementia Fears
Video of the performance shows Trump mouthing some of the words, but he also appeared to have botched some of the lyrics. He said his grandfather had taught him to do this only during the pledge, and to only sing during the anthem.

The legendary biochemist passed away on November 9, 2011.

-Married to Swiss Esther Elizabeth Sibler, Khorana's biography praised Sibler for bringing a "consistent sense of a time when, [Har] Khorana felt out of place everywhere and at home nowhere". These include the ability to create artificial life and most recently, to edit genomes with CRISPR technology, which could one day eradicate genetic disorders. This earned him a full scholarship to study chemistry at Punjab University in Lahore, despite skipping the mandatory admissions interview because he was too shy.

Having graduated from the University of Punjab in India in 1945, Khorana later undertook courses at the University of Liverpool and University of Cambridge. After a doctorate in Organic Chemistry, he went to Zurich to work with Professor Vladimir Prelog.

GoPro Has Given Up On Drones
For now, the company appears to be doubling down on the one thing it does know how to do: make small action cameras. GoPro did acknowledge that the product "faces margin challenges in an extremely competitive aerial market".

From 1952 to 1960, Khorana served as a faculty at the University of British Columbia, where he began his Nobel Prize winning work in the field of biologically interesting phosphate esters and nucleic acids.
