This book relates how, among 1954 and 1961, the biologist Seymour Benzer mapped the superb constitution of the rII area of the genome of the bacterial virus referred to as phage T4. Benzer’s accomplishments are widely known as a tipping aspect in mid-twentieth-century molecular biology while the character of the gene was once recast in molecular phrases. extra frequently than the other person, he's thought of to have led geneticists from the classical gene into the molecular age.
 
Drawing on Benzer’s remarkably entire list of his experiments, his correspondence, and released resources, this e-book reconstructs how the previous physicist initiated his paintings in phage biology and completed his landmark research. The account of Benzer’s creativity as a researcher is an engaging tale that still unearths interesting facets universal to the scientific enterprise.
