Arthur B. Pardee, Francois Jacob, and Jacques Monod submitted their paper “The Genetic Control and Cytoplasmic Expression of “Inducibility” in the Synthesis of β-galactosidase by E. Coli” to the Journal of Molecular Biology, which then published it in the June 1959 issue. This paper summarized two years of experiments identifying the abnormal regulation processes and enzymes produced by mutated genes in E. Coli, supporting the hypothesis that some molecule—labelled later as messenger RNA (mRNA)—mediated the production of proteins from DNA.

I recently completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the City University of Hong Kong in the Department of Public Policy with the Center for East Asian and Comparative Philosophy. I am now teaching courses in political science at Idaho State University and the College of Eastern Idaho. View all posts by Shea Robison
