16 outstanding researchers receive Singapore's highest honor in science and technology

en involved in countless discussions at research institutes and university departments, and in giving scientific talks and public lectures. These public lectures were always interesting, peppered with characteristic wit and humour, and delivered on key points. He spoke to the public and students in a way that they could understand, thereby helping to elevate the level of science consciousness and interest in Singapore.

Today, Singapore is internationally recognised as a growing biomedical research hub. Dr Brenner's ideas and influence on policies and initiatives have left a deep imprint in enhancing Singapore's capability and reputation in contemporary and leading edge biomedical science research.

For his distinguished and strategic contributions to the development of Singapore's scientific capability and culture, particularly in the biomedical sciences sector, Dr Sydney Brenner is awarded the National Science and Technology Medal 2006.

"For their innovative work in developing the Paired End diTag sequencing technology for comprehensive characterisation of the human genome and transcriptome"

The human genome sequence, which was completed in 2004, provides a framework of the entire genetic information in Homo sapiens. However the vast functional content within the genome is not well-defined. In order to fully understand human genetics, it is necessary to identify all the functional elements and analyze how these elements interact with each other to deliver biological outcomes.

The research focus of the Genome Technology and Biology group at Genome Institute of Singapore, led by Dr. Ruan Yijun and Dr. Wei Chia Lin, is to elucidate the structure of all functional DNA elements in the human genome with a focus on transcriptome characterization and transcr
