More Nobel laureates for 2017 are named.
This year's chemistry prize goes to a team of researchers from Switzerland, the U.S., and the U.K., for their breakthrough approach in studying biological molecules at an atomic level.
The technique developed by Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson, is known as cryo-electron microscopy.
It has proven to be valuable when applied in medical research.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said the method has moved biochemistry into a new era.
Other than the prestiege, the scientists also take home the prize money of roughly one.one million U.S. dollars.
