Description:

Marshall Nirenberg (second left) explaining the genetic code to President Lyndon Johnson (second right) Cracking this "genetic" code became the biological challenge of the 1960s. The biological code-breakers may not have had the same cloak and dagger appeal as those involved in espionage; nevertheless, their detective work gave us a new understanding into the role of DNA.
