He is famous because of his Discovery of introns. Introns are chunks of genes which don’t have meaning. They are removed during a process called gene-splicing, also discovered by Roberts. The remaining pieces (called exons) can be joined more than one way. Using splicing, the cell can make several different proteins from one gene.
