Google Doodle honors Har Govind Khorana – biochemist who deciphered DNA

In 1968, Khorana was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with fellow scientists Robert W Holley and Marshall W Nirenberg.

Google on Tuesday honored Indian-American scientist Har Gobind Khorana with an illustration on google doodle on the 96th birth anniversary of the noble laureate well known for his work on DNA and the construction of the first synthetic gene.

Born in a village in Raipur of British India in 1922, Khorana was the youngest of five children of a village clerk. He went to the United Kingdom to pursue PhD after the completion of his bachelors and masters degree from Lahore. During his tenure, working under Professor Vladimir Prelog in Zurich for one year, Khorana became an expert on chemical synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins.

Having graduated from the University of Punjab in India in 1945, Khorana later undertook courses at the University of Liverpool and University of Cambridge. The Indo-American scientist began work on his Nobel winning contribution to the field of medicine after he moved to Canada in 1952 and started working at the University of Columbia. Later the Nobel laureate moved to United States and continued his research work at the University of Wisconsin.

At the University of Wisconsin, Khorana worked on his research work with fellow scientists Marshall W Nirenberg and Robert W Holley from 1952 to 1960 was granted American citizenship in 1966. Khorana made his second scientific breakthrough with the construction of the first synthetic gene in 1972 – soon after his fellow scientist Nirenberg discovered the first phase of the genetic code.

In 1968, Khorana was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with Robert W Holley and Marshall W Nirenberg for “their interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis”. He was also awarded the National Medal of Science for his iconic work in the field of genetics.

According to the biography of Khorana, he was married to Swiss national Esther Elizabeth Sibler – on whom the biography showered praises for bringing a “consistent sense of purpose … at a time when he felt out of place everywhere and at home nowhere”.

The legendary biochemist passed away on November 9, 2011.
