Together three items. Very good.

First Edition, journal issue of the three key DNA papers, which earned the 1963 Nobel Prize for Watson, Crick and Wilkins. Also included is “Helical structure of crystalline deoxypentose nucleic acid” by Wilkins, Stokes, Wilson and Seeds, “suggest[ing] that proof is now available that dexoyribonucleic acid consists of two helical intertwined polynucleotide chains.”

The final paper included here is Crick and Brenner’s “General nature of the genetic code for proteins,” which demonstrated that DNA code is written in “words” called codons formed of three DNA bases, and proposed the existence of transfer RNAs (tRNAs). This paper, published seven years after George Gamov proposed the existence of a genetic code, is “admired throughout the science as a classic of intellectual clarity, precision, and force” (Judson, p. 468). Judson, Eighth Day of Creation, pp. 467-68. Garrison-Morton.com 256.3 (Watson & Crick), 256.4 (Wilkins et al.), 256.8 (Crick, Brenner et al.).
