Crick, Francis, 1916-2004

Description:
This draft of a report on the operation of the Medical Research Council's Laboratory of Molecular Biology during its first one-and-a-half years was likely written during the latter half of 1963. In it Crick stated that "The mechanism of protein synthesis and the genetic code are now partly understood. It is broadly true to say that all the classical problems of Molecular Biology are either solved in outline or well on the way to solution."
