STOCKHOLM, October 7. /TASS/. American Paul Modrich, Swedish Tomas Lindahl and Turkish-born Aziz Sancar have won the 2015 Nobel Prize in chemistry "for having mapped, at a molecular level, how cells repair damaged DNA and safeguard the genetic information," the Nobel Committee said on Wednesday.
"Their work has provided fundamental knowledge of how a living cell functions and is, for instance, used for the development of new cancer treatments," the committee said.
The Nobel Prize is worth 8 million Swedish crowns ($960,000).
The Nobel Prize in literature will be announced on Thursday, the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday and the economics prize on Monday.
