Read through the most famous quotes from Francis Crick

We've discovered the secret of life.

A comparison between the triplets tentatively deduced by these methods with the changes in amino acid sequence produced by mutation shows a fair measure of agreement.

— Francis Crick

#agreement #amino #amino acid #between #changes

A final proof of our ideas can only be obtained by detailed studies on the alterations produced in the amino acid sequence of a protein by mutations of the type discussed here.

Do codons overlap? In other words, as we read along the genetic message do we find a base which is a member of two or more codons? It now seems fairly certain that codons do not overlap.

— Francis Crick

#base #certain #codons #fairly #find

For simplicity one can think of the + class as having one extra base at some point or other in the genetic message and the - class as having one too few.

How is the base sequence, divided into codons? There is nothing in the backbone of the nucleic acid, which is perfectly regular, to show us how to group the bases into codons.

If poly A is added to poly U, to form a double or triple helix, the combination is inactive.

If the code does indeed have some logical foundation then it is legitimate to consider all the evidence, both good and bad, in any attempt to deduce it.

— Francis Crick

#attempt #bad #both #code #consider

It has yet to be shown by direct biochemical methods, as opposed to the indirect genetic evidence mentioned earlier, that the code is indeed a triplet code.

— Francis Crick

It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of any protein is determined by the sequence of bases in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule.

thesis; Watson also had other work such as trying to obtain crystals of myoglobin for X-ray diffraction experiments. 15 July 1951) and Jacqueline Marie-Therese [later Nichols] (b. 34 nanometre) intervals in DNA.

Crick was an important theoretical molecular biologist and played a crucial role in research related to revealing the genetic code. Kieckhefer DistinguiFrancis Crickd Research Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla California. He is widely known for use of the term "central dogma" to summarize an idea that genetic information flow in cells is essentially one-way from DNA to RNA to protein.
