Ah, click chemistry.
This year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to two Americans, K. Barry Sharpless of Scripps Research in La Jolla, Calif., and Carolyn R. Bertozzi of Stanford University, and to Danish scientist Morten Meldal at the University of Copenhagen.

In looking up what they were working on to win, I learned that “In chemical synthesis, click chemistry is a class of biocompatible small molecule reactions commonly used in bioconjugation, allowing the joining of substrates of choice with specific biomolecules.

Ok. Um. I sort of get it. (No … I don’t, actually.)

Now then, reflecting back to a less complicated time, I totally understand this award.
