Writings - Brenner


The Brenner subseries (SB/2/1) consists of papers authored or co-authored by Sydney Brenner from the late 1940s to 2010. It is arranged alphabetically by the title of the paper. The subseries documents Brenner's scientific career, especially his work on the genetic code, the genome of Caernorhabditis elegans, the Human Genome Project, and the pufferfish genome. Of note are manuscripts and typescripts for a number of landmark papers, including "An Unstable Intermediate Carrying Information from Genes to Ribosomes for Protein Synthesis," "General Nature of the Genetic Code for Proteins," and "UGA: A Third Nonsense Triplet in the Genetic Code" (which includes supporting research files). The subseries also includes some research proposals for the Medical Research Council (MRC). Brenner's reviews of books are generally filed under "Reviews" and then arranged by the title of the book. Informal notes from meetings and conferences has also been included in this series. Please see the Institutional Correspondence subseries (SB/1/2) for related correspondence with publishers.
