Happy birthday Dorothy Hodgkin

Very glad to see that today’s Google Doodle is dedicated to the 104th birthday anniversary of Dorothy Hodgkin, known for the development of protein crystallography and establishing the structures of vitamin B12 and penicillin. X-ray crystallography is a method that can help determine the three-dimensional structures of biomolecules. She was awarded the nobel prize in Chemistry in 1964
