Comparing the early days of molecular biology research to today's informatics - heavy genome era.
Recounting how the seminal "Meselson-Stahl" experiment was only performed 3 times, with one set of results discarded due to mislabelled tubes!
On whether, upon completing their seminal experiment, Max DelbrÃ¼ck locked Meselson and Stahl in a cabin to force them to write up their results for publishing - how the great scientists are always looking to the "next result."
Describing how he first met Matthew Meselson.
Describing his first meeting with James Watson and Matthew Meselson.
Franklin Stahl and Matthew Meselson invented the technique of density gradient centrifugation and used this to prove that DNA is replicated semi-conservatively.

Doug Hanahan refined transformation methods for DNA uptake into bacteria.
Model organisms such as yeast, bacteria, the mouse and the fruit fly are used by researchers to study biological systems. The genomes of these organisms have been mapped and sequenced.
