He said Arnold's development of an enzyme that can promote chemical reactions involving silicon was also a startling accomplishment, "completely bonkers".
Alfred Nobel, who created the prizes in his will, was himself a chemist, and devised his famed awards in part to atone for inventing dynamite. "We need to celebrate women physicists because we're out there, and hopefully in time it'll start to move forward at a faster rate".
All three "have taken control of evolution", using the principles of genetic change and selection to create proteins, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences wrote in its announcement.
Winter, of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, then harnessed that method and used it to direct the evolution of new antibodies - immune proteins that bind to and neutralize pathogens such as bacteria or viruses - with the aim of making new drugs.
The trio won for harnessing the power of evolution to produce novel proteins used in everything from environmentally friendly detergents and biofuels to cancer drugs. "But there was so much static on the line, I knew it wasn't any of my friends", he said. What's more, if known proteins were engineered to appear on the phage, scientists could see which genes were involved.

"The use of antibodies has resulted in a paradigm shift in the way that we now treat so many diseases which has brought significant benefits to patients across the world and will continue to do so for years to come", he said. I think Frances was certainly met with a degree of resistance at the time.
Smith, 77, was a professor for 40 years at the University of Missouri at the Division of Biological Sciences. "Is that the kind of work that people will want to fund?", she asked. And so she realized the thing to do was to use randomness.
