Francis Crick

English molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist
One can say, looking at the papers in this symposium, that the elucidation of the genetic code is indeed a great achievement. It is, in a sense, the key to molecular biology because it shows how the great polymer languages, the nucleic acid language and the protein language, are linked together.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
