Produced 1977 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet looks at the elucidation of the genetic code. It includes information about how macromolecular components interact in the cell to make proteins. The booklet considers some of the experimental details which gave rise to a better understanding of this cellular process.
Sections in the booklet include:
* Cellular macromolecules
* Elucidation of the genetic code
* Components of protein biosynthesis
* Initiation and termination of protein synthesis
