Nobel prize in physiology/medicine

It's Nobel season, so I'll take a bit of time to pass along the news as it comes out. Of course, you'll get the same basic information from whatever other news sources you pay attention to, but I'll try to point you to something that talks more about the underlying science than you'll get from the mass media. Here's a good place to start:

Capecchi, Smithies and Evans share the Nobel
Mario Capecchi of the University of Utah, Sir Martin Evans of Cardiff University in the UK and Oliver Smithies of University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, will share this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work in gene manipulation that let to the development of knockout mice.
