Quotes by Francis Crick

Let these Francis Crick quotes help you to appreciate all aspects of life, and to cope with whatever comes along.

Unfortunately it makes the unambiguous determination
of triplets by these methods much more difficult than
would be the case if there were only one triplet for each amino acid.
- Francis Crick

This seems highly likely, especially as it has been
shown that in several systems mutations affecting the
same amino acid are extremely near together on the genetic map.
- Francis Crick

If poly A is added to poly U, to form a double or triple helix,
the combination is inactive.
- Francis Crick

We've discovered the secret of life.
- Francis Crick

 

We are sometimes asked what the result would be if
we put four +'s in one gene.
To answer this my colleagues have recently put together
not merely four but six +'s.
- Francis Crick

It has yet to be shown by direct biochemical methods,
as opposed to the indirect genetic evidence mentioned earlier,
that the code is indeed a triplet code.
- Francis Crick

A final proof of our ideas can only be obtained by
detailed studies on the alterations produced in the
amino acid sequence of a protein by mutations of the type discussed here.
- Francis Crick

How is the base sequence, divided into codons? There
is nothing in the backbone of the nucleic acid,
which is perfectly regular, to show us how to group the bases into codons.
- Francis Crick

It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of
any protein is determined by the sequence of bases
in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule.
- Francis Crick

A comparison between the triplets tentatively deduced
by these methods with the changes in amino acid sequence
produced by mutation shows a fair measure of agreement.
- Francis Crick

For simplicity one can think of the + class as having
one extra base at some point or other in the genetic message and the -
class as having one too few.
- Francis Crick

If the code does indeed have some logical foundation
then it is legitimate to consider all the evidence,
both good and bad, in any attempt to deduce it.
- Francis Crick

It seems likely that most if not all the genetic information
in any organism is carried by nucleic acid -
usually by DNA,
although certain small viruses use RNA as their genetic material.
- Francis Crick

Moreover the incorporation requires the same components
needed for protein synthesis,
and is inhibited by the same inhibitors.
Thus the system is most unlikely to be a complete artefact
and is very probably closely related to genuine protein synthesis.
- Francis Crick

If, for example, all the codons are triplets,
then in addition to the correct reading of the message,
there are two incorrect readings which we shall obtain
if we do not start the grouping into sets of three at the right place.
- Francis Crick

The meaning of this observation is unclear,
but it raises the unfortunate possibility of ambiguous triplets;
that is,
triplets which may code more than one amino acid.
However one would certainly expect such triplets to be in a minority.
- Francis Crick

It would appear that the number of nonsense triplets is rather low,
since we only occasionally come across them.
However this conclusion is less secure than our other
deductions about the general nature of the genetic code.
- Francis Crick

Attempts have been made from a study of the changes
produced by mutation to obtain the relative order of
the bases within various triplets,
but my own view is that these are premature until there
is more extensive and more reliable data on the composition of the triplets.
- Francis Crick

Do codons overlap? In other words, as we read along
the genetic message do we find a base which is a member
of two or more codons? It now seems fairly certain
that codons do not overlap.
- Francis Crick

The balance of evidence both from the cell-free system
and from the study of mutation,
suggests that this does not occur at random,
and that triplets coding the same amino acid may well be rather similar.
- Francis Crick

It now seems very likely that many of the 64 triplets,
possibly most of them, may code one amino acid or another,
and that in general several distinct triplets may code one amino acid.
- Francis Crick

It is one of the more striking generalizations of biochemistry -
which surprisingly is hardly ever mentioned in the biochemical textbooks -
that the twenty amino acids and the four bases,
are, with minor reservations, the same throughout Nature.
- Francis Crick

Naturally, every age thinks that all ages before it were prejudiced,
and today we think this more than ever, and are just as wrong
as all previous ages that thought so.
How often have we not seen the truth condemned!
It is sad but unfortunately true that man learns nothing from history.
- Carl Jung

We are all "neighbors."
Our world has gotten too small for us to be anything else.
We can no longer have "us" and "them" - friends and enemies.
A person from Iraq, or Russia, or Columbia is
no more a stranger or enemy than a person from across town.
A few people everywhere are troublemakers.
Every religion provokes a few people to become extremists.
Do we need police around the globe? Unfortunately, we always will.
Do we need war? Does that question even deserve an answer?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Vince Lombardi

Unfortunately, what many people forget is that judges

- Tammy Bruce

Unfortunately, he didn't teach me everything he knows.
- Al Unser

My father invented a cure for which there was no disease
and unfortunately my mother caught it and died of it.
- Victor Borge

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing.
You don't win once in a while,
you don't do things right once in a while,
you do them right all the time.
Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
- Vince Lombardi

Do real life people actually fall in love
with the idea of being in love?
Unfortunately, it is actually quite common.
Someone wants desperately to have
the husband or wife of their dreams.
They visualize the vine-covered cottage
with the white picket fence.
They choose the colors for the nursery.
They design all the aspects of their married life.
A real person stands no chance of measuring up to those fantasies.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

There are two theories on hitting the knuckleball.
Unfortunately, neither of them works.
- Charley Lau

Without accepting the fact that everything changes,
we cannot find perfect composure.
But unfortunately, although it is true,
it is difficult for us to accept it.
Because we cannot accept the truth of transience,
we suffer.
- Shunryu Suzuki

The idea that we're going to win this war is an idea
that unfortunately is just plain wrong.
- Howard Dean

Any feeling that I was enriching my mind from those
