    He is known for amino acid sequence of insulin, and the dideoxy method of sequencing DNA which is called the "Sanger method" this was a major breakthrough and allowed long stretches of DNA to be rapidly and accurately sequenced. It earned him his second Nobel prize in Chemistry in 1980 which he shared with Walter Gilbert and Paul Berg..
