Comparison of the Tryptic Peptide of Wild Strains of Tobacco Mosaic Virus
Wittman determines the exact amino acid composition of different strains of the tobacco mosaic virus by splitting the viruses
into RNA and proteins. This work on determining the amino acid sequence would be cited by Nirenberg and others later as the
bulk of amino acid substitutions found in TMV proteins did not occur in clusters, suggesting a non-overlapping code.
