1 A brief history of genomics

  title={1 A brief history of genomics},
  author={Francis H. C. Crick},
From time to time new scientific breakthroughs and technologies arise that forever change scientific practice. During the last 50 years, several advances stand out in our minds that – coupled with advances in the computational and computer sciences – have made genomic studies possible. In the brief history of genomics presented here we review the circumstances and consequences of these relatively recent technological revolutions. Our brief history begins during the years immediately following…

Genetic Regulatory Mechanisms in the Synthesis of Proteins
The synthesis of enzymes in bacteria follows a double genetic control. The socalled structural genes determine the molecular organization of the proteins. Other, functionally specialized, genetic

Methods for covalently joining duplex DNA molecules to one another are developed and used to construct circular dimers of SV40 DNA and to insert a DNA segment containing lambda phage genes and the galactose operon of E. coli into SV40DNA.
Letter: A suggested nomenclature for bacterial host modification and restriction systems and their enzymes.
Abstract In the proposed nomenclature restriction-modification systems are named according to host organism and strain. Different R-M systems in a single host are designated by Roman numerals.
