Lecturer in Zoology,
University College, London
' Imagine that biologists are trying to make living cells and animals. Then the present situation is something like this: we know what parts ought to he provided in the make-yourself-an-animal kit; we even know how to make these parts; but we've very little idea of how to put them together.'
Where is the ' book of instructions '? Dr. Curtis presents some recent evidence which suggests that not all the instructions are ' written ' in the DNA in the cell nucleus.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
