It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of
any protein is determined by the sequence of bases
in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule.
- Francis Crick

Unfortunately it makes the unambiguous determination
of triplets by these methods much more difficult than
would be the case if there were only one triplet for each amino acid.
- Francis Crick

A comparison between the triplets tentatively deduced
by these methods with the changes in amino acid sequence
produced by mutation shows a fair measure of agreement.
- Francis Crick

is nothing in the backbone of the nucleic acid,
which is perfectly regular, to show us how to group the bases into codons.
- Francis Crick

Yes, but personally I was never a big acid head.
- Bill Griffith

This seems highly likely, especially as it has been

The meaning of this observation is unclear,
but it raises the unfortunate possibility of ambiguous triplets;
that is,
triplets which may code more than one amino acid.
However one would certainly expect such triplets to be in a minority.
- Francis Crick

Since hydrogen is a constituent of most of our electrolytic solvents,
the definition of an acid or base as a substance which
gives up or takes up hydrogen ion would be more general
than the one we used before,
but it would not be universal.
- Gilbert Newton Lewis

The balance of evidence both from the cell-free system
and from the study of mutation,
suggests that this does not occur at random,
and that triplets coding the same amino acid may well be rather similar.
- Francis Crick

We played together for so long and we got to the point
where our styles blended together.
Even today, sometimes I'll hear our records and I'm

We may say that a basic substance is one which has
a lone pair of electrons which may be used to complete

from another molecule in completing the stable group of one of its own atoms.
- Gilbert Newton Lewis

We frequently define an acid or a base as a substance
whose aqueous solution gives,

This is a very one sided definition.
- Gilbert Newton Lewis

It now seems very likely that many of the 64 triplets,

- Francis Crick

not only we, but everyone will profit from it.

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.
Because things are not the target,
you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

We all breathe the same air.

It is not so much a war as an endless standing in line.

need for education in our society.
- Kent Conrad

A safe and nutritionally adequate diet is a basic individual
right and an essential condition for sustainable development,
especially in developing countries.
