DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC acid (DNA) is thought to be formed by replication. Meselson and Stahl1 have used a density-gradient centrifugation technique to show that bacterial DNA is bipartite as was proposed by Watson and Crick2 and that it reproduces in a semi-conservative fashion3, each original sub-unit being found associated, on replication, with a newly formed sub-unit. 
Deoxyribonueleie Acid Synthesis or Turn-over in Non-dividing Pollen Cells of Pine
INVESTIGATIONS of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) formation in vivo have shown that synthesis and replication are completed before separation of chromosomes begins. DNA synthesis, as measured by
Is DNA replication a necessary condition for spontaneous mutation?
TLDR
To determine whether DNA replicates in non-dividing bacteria under conditions allowing mutation, a double auxotroph of E. coli 15(histidineand leucine less) was starved for amino acids in minimal medium.

Abstract— A striking increase in the shoulder of the u.v. survival curve but no change in the limiting slope is obtained when cultures of Escherichia coli strain TAU complete the DNA replication

TLDR
The recommended term Protocaryotes or protocaryotic organisms (preferred over Procaryotes and procaryotic) reflects the more primitive status of nuclear organization in these forms as compared with all others.
Involvement of Synthesis of RNA in Thymineless Death
TLDR
Evidence is provided that messenger-RNA synthesis in particular is necessary for the killing event in thymine-deficient cultures, and that the inhibitory effect of 5-methyl tryptophan could be partially reversed (with respect to RNA synthesis and thymineless killing) by chloramphenicol.
Novel Role of mfd: Effects on Stationary-Phase Mutagenesis in Bacillus subtilis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the loss of Mfd has a depressive effect on stationary-phase mutagenesis, and an association between Mfd mutagenisation and aspects of transcription is discussed.
Directed mutation: between unicorns and goats
TLDR
This review will examine how the data have fared in the 3 years since reference 10 was published and will discuss some of the hypotheses to explain them, focusing on E. coli, which has been the subject of most reports.

The structure of DNA.
TLDR
The detailed structure described by Crick and Watson has been shown to have too large a diameter, and a drawing has been given of an improved model which is in fairly good agreement with the s-ray data.

TLDR
A method was developed for the detection of small density differences among macromolecules and the distribution of the heavy nitrogen isotope N15 among molecules of DNA following the transfer of a uniformly N15-labeled, exponentially growing bacterial population to a growth medium containing the ordinary nitrogen isotopes.
