How proteins are made became a major focus following the discovery of the double-helicalstructure of DNA in 1953. Once it was realized that the genetic code existed within the order ofbase pairs of DNA, it became of immediate importance to understand how that information wasconverted into the sequences of amino acids that defined individual proteins. The solution of thisproblem, which includes deciphering the genetic code, is one of the great achievements in thescience that is now known as molecular biology. Many of these achievements have been recorded and celebrated at previous Symposia in this series.
