                  Israeli professor Arieh Warshel on Wednesday won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, jointly with US Professors Martin Karplus and Michael Levitt "for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems", the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced in Stockholm.
                  The prize amount is of 8 million Swedish crowns ($1.25 million or 916,000 €).
                  "Computer models mirroring real life have become crucial for most advances made in chemistry today," the Academy added.
                  Warshel, who has also American citinzenship, was born in 1940 in kibbutz Sde Nahum. A Ph.D from the Weizmann Institute of Sciences in Rehovot, he is a distinguished professor at University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
                  It should be noted that Michael Levitt, from Stanford University, has US, British and Israeli citizenships. He was a postdoctoral scholar at the Weizmann Institute of Sciencze in Rehovot, Israel.
