President Shimon Peres on Wednesday called Professor Ada Yonath to congratulate her on being awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in chemistry. "We are proud of you, it's hard to describe just how proud," the president said. "This is the first time that a researcher from the Weizman Institute has been awarded a Nobel Prize and I am happy for your success." Yonath, along with Americans Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas Steitz, was awarded the prize for mapping ribosomes, the protein-producing factories within cells, at the atomic level.
