We have been having a fine time on our lecture tour of Japan and only regret missing yourself at Osaka/Kyoto while you are
away. (But thank you for the use of your office in Osaka!) But I hope we may see you if you return home via California.
At Stanford, we are planning to start some new work on brain proteins (as you may see from the enclosure). I talked to Dr.
K. Koyota of the Neuropsychiatry Department of Kumamoto Medical School, who is one of the few people who has published in
this field (J. Neurochem.) about his possibly visiting for a year or two, but his English now is rather deficient and I could
not easily form an opinion about the quality of his laboratory work. Could you help me in this regard, either from your own
knowledge or by inquiring of other people whose judgment would be reliable?
In microbial genetics, we have a particular interest now in aromatic metabolism in Bacillus subtilis. Have you worked with
this organism, or do you know of other literature on this subject?
