Abstract:

The author narrates how she was supposed to study the hypothetical relationships between lycopene and vitamin A and was provided with a barrel of spoiled tomato juice from which to extract lycopene. Experiences of the author and her old friend, Georges Cohen, are narrated in this chapter, highlighting the opportunity they had to listen to and meet, in an informal and congenial atmosphere, some of the leading contemporary biochemists and experimental biologists. Next the author talks about her experiences with Jacques Monod. The club was Jacques Monod’s creation and reflected his generosity and devotion to the education of younger scientists. The author had attended the meeting "Les unites douees de continuite genetique" at which Andre Lwoff and Jacques Monod had participated, and read with great fascination the recent review published in the Growth Symposium by Jacques Monod. The study of the effect of cations on the activity of β-galactosidase and the affinity of its substrates was also part of the author's occupations.
