  • Chemistry awarded to Roger Kornberg of Stanford University, for his work on the transcription of DNA to messenger RNA.
  • Physics awarded to George Smoot of UC-Berkeley and John Mather of NASA for their discovery of small variations of the microwave microwave background radiation.
  • Medicine awarded to Craig Mello of the U Mass Medical Center and Andrew Fire of Stanford University for their work on RNA interference in cells, which helps to understand the function of individual genes.
