Indian-American Venkatraman Ramakrishnan today won the 2009 Nobel prize for Chemistry along with two others for their path-breaking work on ribosomes which may help in the development of new antibiotics.57-year-old Ramakrishnan, who hails from the temple town of Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu, will share USD 1.4 million award with Thomas Steitz of the US and Ada Yonath of Israel.The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said three dimensional models developed by the three scientists showed how different antibiotics bind to ribosomes.

"These models are now used by scientists in order to develop new antibiotics, directly assisting the saving of lives and decreasing humanity's suffering," the academy said in its citation.
