Making the Short List

Paul Nurse, president of The Rockefeller University in New York and winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, gave the keynote address at Duke Medicine's 75th Anniversary Science Symposium.

In his talk Nurse said the four great ideas in biology are the cell, the gene, evolution through natural selection, and the idea that cells use chemistry to function.

Funny, "God did it" didn't make the list.
