This is the process that the body undergoes of destroying old cells in order to make room for newer cells. He also did research in the immune system and was a Nobel Prize winner. Another Russian biologist was Aleksandr Oparin who researched the origin of life.

Harald Rosenthal was famous for his work with ecology. He helped develop the fish farming practices that are used in the industry today. Gunter Blobel was another German biologist who did work in proteins. He was also a Nobel Prize winner. Charlotte Auerbach disvovered mutagenesis.
