The main author Gerry Joyce is generally thought to be on the short list of future Nobel Prize winners in biology since his papers are consistently among the most cited research papers in the field. The secondary author Brain Paegel (then a graduate student) has launched his own faculty career and has already won many prestigious awards as well, including an "NIH Director's New Innovator Award" which is one of the hardest biomedical grants to get.
