5. Albert Einstein
(18791955)

The Jewish, German-born physicist, is widely regarded as the most important
scientist of the 20th century. His theory of relativity, published in 1905,
included his famous formula E=mc2, which equates matter with energy. He was
awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his 1905 explanation of the 
photoelectric effect. Einstein's work had a profound impact on everything.
Now a days myriad of physics and biology collaborations in bioinformatics
and in general biology are resultant of such activities.
