Describing Arnold's contribution, the academy noted: "In 1993, she conducted the first directed evolution of enzymes , which are proteins that catalyse chemical reactions". Smith showed in 1985 that inserting DNA into these viruses would make them display proteins linked to that DNA on their surfaces. In 2009, Ada E. Yonath shared the prize for her work related to the structure of ribosomes, making her the fourth female chemistry Nobel laureate ever.
