In this paper Crick, Brenner, and their collaborators described a very elegant series of genetic experiments by which they proved that the genetic code for protein was a triplet code. They used an acridine dye, proflavin, to induce mutations in a specific, well-studied gene of a virus, a so-called bacteriophage, that attacked the bacterium Escherichia coli. The effect of proflavin was to either eliminate a single nucleotide from the gene or to add a nucleotide, each of which had the effect… Expand
