Dot Lab's name was inspired by Dorothy Hodgkin (1910-1994). "Oxford Housewife wins Nobel" was the headline that ran when she won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1964.
The "housewife" was in fact one of the most outstanding scientists of the 20th Century. She analyzed the molecular structure of complex chemicals including hormones, antibiotics (penicillin and cephalosporin C), cholesterol, and vitamins (D and B12 used to treat anemia).
The technique she used involves passing X-rays through crystals, which produces diffraction patterns on film from which the 3D structures can be deduced.
