This was well illustrated by the symposium on protein chemistry held on September 3 in Section B (Chemistry) of the British Association, in which the contributions ranged in subject from biochemistry to mathematics, each justifying its inclusion either by the addition of some significant fact to the total sum of knowledge or by the formulation of a stimulating hypothesis to account for facts which still await complete explanation.
