Francis Crick

English molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist
Unfortunately it makes the unambiguous determination of triplets by these methods much more difficult than would be the case if there were only one triplet for each amino acid.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How is the base sequence, divided into codons? There is nothing in the backbone of the nucleic acid, which is perfectly regular, to show us how to group the bases into codons.More Francis Crick quotes [10/06/2011 05:10:18]
This seems highly likely, especially as it has been shown that in several systems mutations affecting the same amino acid are extremely near together on the genetic map.More Francis Crick quotes [10/06/2011 05:10:23]
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]
While Occam's razor is a useful tool in the physical sciences, it can be a very dangerous implement in biology. It is thus very rash to use simplicity and elegance as a guide in biological research.More Francis Crick quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
