Genetics

  • When new nomenclature is presented, it often looks
  • odd to practising biochemists and is not always ap-
  • preciated. Even systems such as the one-letter codes
  • for amino acids, which have been universally
  • adopted, met with some skepticism at first.
  •      R. Cammack1
  • Every cell division involves the copying of 6 billion
  • base pairs (bp) of DNA.
  •   F. S. Collins and J. M. Trent2
