I'm not sure I fully understand the ramifications of Dr Kobilka's work but it sounds like a vital discovery.
That his wife's input and "help" are deemed to be a sidelined matter is disturbing and almost a cliche. Too much a pattern in too many arenas eg: Einstein's 1st wife was the source of the basic puzzle piece vav relativity which after she explained it to him, he divorced her and went on to write "his" theorem.
So I am curious about just how her "input" fits into the essentials of his work.
Just wanted to point out this all too common inequity... wifely intellectual property belongs to hubby.
