Francis Crick

English molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist
A good scientist values criticism almost higher than friendship: no, in science criticism is the height and measure of friendship.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can do reverse engineering, but you can’t do reverse hacking.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Again the message to experimentalists is: Be sensible but don't be impressed too much by negative arguments. If at all possible, try it and see what turns up. Theorists almost always dislike this sort of approach.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Attempts have been made from a study of the changes produced by mutation to obtain the relative order of the bases within various triplets, but my own view is that these are premature until there is more extensive and more reliable data on the composition of the triplets.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Moreover the incorporation requires the same components needed for protein synthesis, and is inhibited by the same inhibitors. Thus the system is most unlikely to be a complete artefact and is very probably closely related to genuine protein synthesis.More Francis Crick quotes [10/06/2011 05:10:08]
