About this work


Miscellaneous scientific notes and calculations (almost all in holograph form), including a small number of sheets not in Crick's hand.

Most sheets have no heading, and none are dated. However, amongst the contents the following can be noted:

one set of notes headed "Poly A etc, Space Groups";

one sheet headed "Structure of M.P.";

Collagen I and Collagen II are the subject of a typed table headed "The possible positions of side-chains";

notes on "Amino Acid Composition" (block graph and table);

a short computer print-out headed "Data for Helical Transform"

3 x b/w X-ray crystallographic images, two of them marked "Stretched RTT".
