2015 Nobel Prize

As you have already know, Professor Satoshi Omura shared 2015 Nobel Prize in medicine. There is no doubt that his work is great. I am proud of his accomplishments because I collaborated with him on the genomic sequencing of the avermectin producer, Streptomyces avermitilis, in the early 2000s.
