Rich Roberts discusses single-molecule sequencing technology with Biome reporter. part 7
Sir Richard J. Roberts FRS, otherwise known as Rich, is the 1993 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine and currently serves as Chief Scientific Officer for New England Biolabs. The focus of Roberts’ research throughout his award-winning career has been restriction enzymes and their associated methyltransferases, whose biotech potential he has helped develop at New England Biolabs since the company’s 1970s beginnings. Roberts is best known for his discovery of introns, for which he was awarded the Nobel prize, and for his development of restriction mapping; both achievements were selected by Genome Biology’s Editorial Board as key moments in 60 years of genome biology.
