  author={J. M. Adams and P. G. Jeppesen and Frederick Sanger and Bart Barrell},
The sequence of fifty-seven nucleotides in the coat protein cistron of phage R17 RNA directly confirms the genetic code, shows that the code used by the phage is degenerate and suggests that highly ordered base-paired structures exist in this RNA. Such base-paired loops may be involved in regulation of cistron expression and packing of the RNA in the phage particle. 
Nucleotide Sequence from the Polypeptide Chain Termination Region of the Coat Protein Cistron in Bacteriophage R17 RNA
The nucleotide sequence of a fragment of R17 RNA, which corresponds to the last six amino-acids of the bacteriophage coat protein, and extends on the 3′ side of the coat protein cistron for
Nucleotide Sequence of the Gene Coding for the Bacteriophage MS2 Coat Protein
By characterization of fragments, isolated from a nuclease digest of MS2 RNA, the entire nucleotide sequence of the coat gene was established. A “flower”-like model is proposed for the secondary
A sequence of 54 nucleotides from the A-protein cistron of coliphage-R17 RNA.
Three fragments from the A protein cistron of coliphage R17 ribonucleic acid have been found, purified and analysed from a partial T1 ribonuclease digest. A sequence of 54 nucleotides common to all
Polypeptide Chain Initiation: Nucleotide Sequences of the Three Ribosomal Binding Sites in Bacteriophage R17 RNA
The initiator regions of the three cistrons of R17 bacteriophage RNA have been isolated and sequenced. All three regions contain a UGA triplet as well as the expected AUG and two contain the sequence

Bacteriophage Ms2 RNA: nucleotide sequence of the end of the a protein gene and the intercistronic region.
The sequence of an RNA segment of 160 nucleotides preceding the coat protein initiator AUG has been established. It contains the genetic information for the last 45 amino-acids of the A or maturation
Gene Order in the Bacteriophage R17 RNA : 5′–;A Protein–Coat Protein–Synthetase–3′
The sequencing of the ribosome binding sites and parts of the coat protein cistron has enabled the order of the three R17 genes to be established by direct chemical means. Translation may be
Complete nucleotide sequence of bacteriophage MS2 RNA: primary and secondary structure of the replicase gene
The complete, primary chemical structure of a viral genome has now been established and biological properties, such as ribosome binding and codon interactions can now be discussed on a molecular basis.

The strongest evidence for the presence of base-paired secondary structure comes from the nucleotide sequences which have been determined for parts of the RNAs of bacteriophages MS21 and R172 and for a 6S RNA of bacteriaiophage λ3.

Terminal Sequences of Bacteriophage RNAs
The 3′OH terminal oligonucleotides of f2, R17 and QβRNA, isolated by two-dimensional diagonal electrophoresis, have been sequenced. In addition, nucleotide triphosphates have been identified at the
Nucleotide Sequence of E. coli B tRNAVal1
The nucleotide sequence of tRNAVal1 is reported, comprising about 80 per cent of the total valine acceptor activity, and is coded by GUA and GUG, and the minor, t RNAVal2, by GUU and GUC.

In certain mutants a single base change alters the meaning of a messenger codon in such a way that, instead of spelling out an amino-acid, it spells out chain termination. Mutants in a quite
