which Crick opposed as a violation of his atheistic principles.

we are quite busy with ribosomes. both A.A. incorporation and RNA synthesis as revealed by pulse experiments -- also hopes
of understanding T2 RNA. All of us will be here the week before the Gordon Conf. and look forward to your visit
