Albrecht Kossel
Albrecht Kossel was a German biochemist awarded the 1910 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his work on proteins and nucleic acids. His main work was to show that "nuclein" from cellular sources was not one substance but comprised of a protein and a nonprotein (nucleic acid) component.
