Abstract

THE structure of proteins is the major unsolved problem on the boundary of chemistry and biology to-day. We have not yet found the key to the problem, but in recent years a mass of new evidence and new lines of attack have enabled us to see it in a far more concrete and precise form, and to have some hope that we are near to solving it.
