The 1958 Nobel prize to Beadle and Tatum for proposing that each gene is responsible for a distinct enzyme is now seen as both foundational to molecular biology and genetics, albeit oversimplified. Some genes, for example, code for functional RNAs, while others code for non-enzymatic proteins such as collagen. Yet enzymes remain fundamental to life on earth, catalyzing at least 5000 biochemical reactions (so far identified).
