Title:
Letter from Andre Lwoff, Institut Pasteur (France) to Francis Crick

In this letter Lwoff raised the problem that the two chains of the double helix had a different base sequence because they were complementary (and not identical), which meant that if each chain individually coded for proteins, the proteins would be different from one another.
