1 Hoagland, Mahlon Toward The Habit of Truth - A Life In Science
New York W.W. Norton 1990 0393027546 / 9780393027549 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
Stated First edition, first printing. A Fine unmarked copy with VG+ price clipped dustjacket. The discovery of the double helical structure of DNA by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953 revolutionised our view of life, of the genetic structure of living things; but it was, in a sense, only the first door to be opened. A number of mysteries remained, among them the question of how the information contained in our genes is translated into growth; what, in other words, was the machinery that converted genetic information into living substance? This discovery, transfer RNA, was the great scientific achievement of the author at Harvard, but it was not Mahlon's only achievement. He later came to head and carry forward the research of the Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology, a remarkable institution founded by his father, where earlier the birth control pill was developed, the other twin subject of the book. **** NOT EX LIB ****
