To Err and Win a Nobel Prize: Paul Boyer, ATP Synthase and the Emergence of Bioenergetics [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Journal of the History of Biology 35 (1):149 - 172 (2002)
|Abstract||Paul Boyer shared a Nobel Prize in 1997 for his work on the mechanism of ATP synthase. His earlier work, though (which contributed indirectly to his triumph), included major errors, both experimental and theoretical. Two benchmark cases offer insight into how scientists err and how they deal with error. Boyer's work also parallels and illustrates the emergence of bioenergetics in the second half of the twentieth century, rivaling achievements in evolution and molecular biology.|
