Dear Hayaishi,
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?
Cordially,
Joshua Lederberg
