This year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be split by two scientists from the Israel Institute of Technology and an American from the University of California, Irvine. They discovered how living cells carefully select the materials inside them that need to be broken down and recycled. NPR's Renee Montagne talks to NPR's Richard Harris.
