Letter from Aaron Klug to Francis Crick


Title:
Letter from Aaron Klug to Francis Crick
Description:
Klug here reported on recent conferences devoted to DNA sequencing and structure, and described the critical response to evidence that chromosomal DNA formed a supersolenoid--a coiled cylindrical structure made of smaller such coiled structures--presented by Crick's two co-authors of a recent paper on chromosome structure, Arne Leth Bak and Jesper Zeuthen. Klug concluded that "if your name hadn't been attached to it [the idea of a supersolenoid], it would probably have been disbelieved."
