HAARETZ: Israeli scientist professor Ada Yonath received the Nobel Prize for chemistry in a ceremony in Stockholm on Thursday. Yonath was chosen to speak on behalf of the chemistry winners at the lavish ceremony, attended by the Swedish royal family.
The Israeli scientist shares the prize with Britain’s Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas A. Steitz, an American, for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome, a part of the cell that synthesizes protein and translates genetic code in the production of protein.

“There is a great feeling here,” Yonath described her stay in Stockholm Thursday morning. “There is a lot of pleasure in it. I have my entire family here and this is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with them. I can’t complain.”

Yonath, the first Israeli woman to receive the prize, joined 11 other Nobel laureates in the fields of chemistry, physics, medicine, economics and literature. U.S. President Barack Obama received his Nobel Prize for peace in the Norwegian capital, Oslo.

Yonath visited the home of Israel’s ambassador to Sweden, Benny Dagan, for a reception in her honor.
