This symposium was held at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana on January 23, 1962. This announcement for a symposium
devoted exclusively to the topic of the RNA code suggests that the race to uncover the code was both widespread and at least
partly cooperative. Speakers included S. Benzer, F. Lipmann, M. Nirenberg, and S. Ochoa.
