Proteins Crossing Membranes: A Scientist’s Memoir

1st Edition

Stephen Rothman
January 22, 2019

In an intriguing series of experiments carried out many years ago, a common scientific belief, feted by no less than three Nobel prizes, was brought into question. The observations were about proteins—the molecules that the genetic code specifies and that are in one way or another central to all of...
