Letter from Aaron Klug to Francis Crick


Title:
Letter from Aaron Klug to Francis Crick
Description:
In this letter Klug discussed virus structure and possible symmetries in the arrangements of subunits of protein, which together with RNA make up the polio virus Klug was examining. (Other viruses have DNA as their genetic material.) Crick had become interested in the study of virus structure in the mid-1950s as a way of understanding the structure and transcription of RNA.
