First Edition, journal issue. Crick and his team helped to crack the genetic code, amassing evidence suggesting that “the amino-acid sequence along the polypeptide chain of a protein is determined by the sequence of the bases along some particular part of the nucleic acid of the genetic material” (p. 1227), and that each acid was most likely coded by a group of three bases.
