The Code of Life Finally Cracked


Title:
The Code of Life Finally Cracked
Description:
The author reports that Nirenberg "announced his achievement"--deciphering the first word of the genetic code--at the Moscow International Biochemical Congress in August 1961. The news, however, did not leak to the press until December when a group of researchers from New York University announced they had "taken Dr. Nirenberg's code-breaking procedure several steps further and deciphered fourteen out of twenty words of the code of life, and had thus effectively broken it."
