  title={Molecular biology: Seed of revolution},
  author={Michael A. Goldman},
The spectacular achievements in our understanding of the human genome are the outcome of an era of molecular biology that dates back to the 1930s. The seed was a 1935 collaboration in Germany between a theoretical physicist, a radiation physicist and a Drosophila geneticist — Max Delbrück, Karl Zimmer and Nikolai TimoféeffRessovsky, respectively. Their ‘three-man paper’, which sets out the interdisciplinary basis for studying the molecular nature of the gene, was revolutionary. But this… CONTINUE READING
