On day 86 of #LMB365, we celebrate LMB Nobel Laureate John Sulston who was born on this day in 1942. In 1969 he joined Sydney Brenner’s group at the LMB. In 2002 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his discoveries concerning the genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death in C. elegans. “I just loved watching the cells. It’s a beautiful thing to do and a challenge in the jigsaw-puzzling sense to get it all”.
