The hidden side of the Nobel prize bickering, bashing and Science – Sohu culture acbel

The Nobel prize: the dark side of argument, criticism and Science – culture channel Sohu Nobel prize in 2016 results will be announced in early October. Pawel Kopczynski REUTERS if the Nobel prize is credible, then it may be a not calm season. There are people before the beginning of October Nobel announced the results of the annual forecast, Nobel Prize winner. This year’s forecast has sparked controversy, some of which are centered around the CRISPRCas9 gene editing technology, a relatively quick and easy way to modify the genome, which he thinks will win the Nobel prize. The predictions of the physics prize focused on a team of researchers at the laser interferometer gravitational wave observatory (LIGO), which successfully detected Einstein’s gravitational waves early this year. Previously, scientists have been working for up to a century. However, in the face of these scientific findings, the Nobel Committee has to be extremely quick to determine who should be awarded the award, which will be a difficult decision. For example, the LIGO project involves more than 1000 researchers, and the controversy over the attribution of CRISPRCas9 gene editing technology, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the rest of the world is also growing. This can not help but ask: Nobel prize will affect the patent decision? Or will the Nobel Committee wait for patent disputes? No matter the Nobel Committee to choose a team, be sure to say, the Nobel Prize winner will be experienced Rainbow Night opinion, losing because researchers and colleagues will vehemently protest. The United States of Baltimore city John? Hopki Bloomberg School of Public Health University microbiologist Arturo Casadevall said: "the first week of October, the whole world will be focused on science, which is a good thing. But then will be controversial, every year is no exception." Eccentric lucky since more than 100 years ago, the Nobel prize was awarded for the first time, the Nobel laureate’s forecast has never been interrupted. Historian Nils Hansson at the University of Dusseldorf, Germany said that the record he consulted the Nobel Prize nomination and the final result (the Nobel Prize nominated confidential information after 50 years will open) found that, from the beginning, you can only participate in the nomination of three people sharing provisions of an award expressed concern. In 1901, a German surgeon was invited to nominate candidates for the first Nobel prize in physiology or medicine, Hansson said. But he made a protest that science is conducted through group cooperation, it is difficult to select the largest contribution to a person. Analysis of the annual Nobel forecasting firm Thomson Reuters do highlighted the challenges. Last year, Thomson Reuters through data analysis, prediction of the University of California at Berkeley Jennifer Doudna and is currently working in Berlin Marx Planck infectious disease biology institute Emmanuelle Charpentier, will be because of the invention of the CRISPRCas9 technology and Nobel)相关的主题文章:
