If they use the principles of physics to create technology that helps biologists and doctors scan the human body better than before, shouldn't it be a Nobel prize in biology or physics?
It's the manipulation of molecules, which falls under chemistry.
"I use my tongue to test if it's delicious or not," said Nimmalairatana. "I think the government should consider using a human to gauge authenticity."
I don't know... Being a taste tester for Thai food sounds like a good way to suffer severe burnout.
HP Poland gave the government official bags filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of cash
What are 'official bags'? Are those the ones with a big dollar sign on the side?
"For any agricultural plant, having a genome is a prerequisite for any sort of high technology breeding or molecular modification. Without a genome, we couldn't do any real advanced research on coffee that would allow us to improve it — not in this day and age."
So, yes, you can do selective breeding without having the genome sequenced, and you can try to determine over the course of generations which plants have or may produce the desired traits, but if you do have the genome, you can greatly speed up the process by genetically checking the qualities of the plants and basing your choices on that.
