Title:
Letter from Francis Crick to W. Traub
Description:
Crick here reviewed his work with Alexander Rich on collagen during the 1950s. Collagens make up a family of proteins that share a triple-helical shape (three strands of a polypeptide chain wound around one another, corkscrew-like) and that are a major structural component of connective tissue, giving it strength and flexibility.
