Abstract:

The following is a personal account of the beginning years of what is now called . Odd that I, almost a Luddite, should be writing about the origin of a field initiated by a dramatic technical advance; I tend to avoid complex new scientific instruments and techniques. As a graduate student under Boris Magasanik at Harvard Medical School during the early 1950s, I was glad that my project (induced enzyme synthesis in bacteria) could readily be approached with simple technology. Bacterial growth could be monitored turbidimetrically with a Klett colorimeter; the same instrument could provide colorimetric assays of enzyme activities. Only the phage geneticists of that era, using sterile toothpicks to pick viral recombinants or mutants from plaques on Petri dishes, had it technologically easier.
