Considered the most prestigious prize in the scientific world, the Nobel Assembly at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute awards a monetary value of 10 million Swedish crowns ($900,357).

The Nobel Prize Committee said, “Through his pioneering research, Svante Pääbo accomplished something normally impossible: studied the genome sequence of Neanderthals, a deceased relative of modern humans. He also contributed to the sensational discovery of the previously unknown hominin Denisova.”

It provides the basis for exploration,” the statement said.
