Abstract:

During the spring of 1962, a biochemistry course on “the biosynthesis of macromolecules,” presenting experiments which were being done at that very time, was given at the Faculté des Sciences de Paris by Jacques Monod. The courses one usually attended at that time consisted of the boring recitation of formulas, like that of vitamin B or testosterone without any reference to the ideas and the experiments which had led to the comprehension of these structures. The topography of the lab favored communication: it was a long corridor with one pole of attraction, “le labo bleu,” which opened to Jacques Monod’s office. Another pole of attraction came later at the other end of the corridor: Françcois Jacob’s door. The last room was the kitchen, in which Jacques Monod used to come and talk with people. In this forum, theoretical and technical problems were discussed amiably, and we learned to know and appreciate one another.
