Cracking the Code

Logo for Cracking the Code
The National Institutes of Health biochemist Marshall Nirenberg figured out that triplets of DNA bases code for specific amino acids in 1961, 8 years after James Watson and Francis Crick unraveled DNA's helical structure. This new online exhibit chronicles the race to break the code by Nirenberg, who later won the Nobel Prize.
