Chemical composition of the human body, namely DNA

Walter Gilbert at Harvard University and Fred Sanger at Cambridge independently described two methods for rapidly sequencing DNA in 1977. These methods were such a huge step forward that the two scientists won the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1980.

 

Led to the ability to molecularly trace geneology back to our earliest (read chimpanzees) ancestors.
