Khorana's first major breakthrough, for which he was awarded the Nobel, was for decoding the genetic alphabet and demystifying its role in protein synthesis. Together, their work showed how DNA's code leads to the construction of RNA, which in turn allowed the construction of proteins to carry out functions.

Taught by his father to read and write, he rose up to become a Nobel Laureate and the first person to construct an artificial gene.
