Stockholm, October 3 (agency)
This year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine has been awarded to Swedish scientist Svante Paibo for his discovery on the ‘evolution of humans’. Nobel Committee Secretary Thomas Perlman announced the winner of the prize on Monday at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. Pabo led the research to compare the ‘genomes’ of modern humans and our near-endangered species, Neanderthals and Denisovans. It has been demonstrated through research that there is a mixture between these species.
The names of the Nobel Laureates in Physics on Tuesday, Chemistry on Wednesday and Literature on Thursday will be announced. At the same time, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday, while the winner of the Nobel in Economics will be announced on October 10. About 10 million Swedish krona (approximately $9 million) will be awarded to the winner as a prize.
