Caption: Paul Naim Berg (born 1926), US biochemist, photographed circa 1980. Berg shared the 1980 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Walter Gilbert and Frederick Sanger, all three being recognised for their research in nucleic acids. Berg was cited for his fundamental studies of recombinant DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). He carried out this research in the 1960s and 1970s at Stanford University, California, USA. Concerned about the applications of the research, he helped organise the Asilomar conference on recombinant DNA in 1975, which set guidelines for biotechnology research. He was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1983. Berg retired from active research in 2000.
