Comments on Some Present and Future Problems in Protein Structure
In 1964 some program officers at NIH were seriously, and understandably, concerned that the solution of the myoglobin structure might have been an accident. The intense effort that had been going on in the field of protein crystallography during the previous five years had not produced any additional structures and perhaps would not in the foreseeable future. The dramatic appearance of the lysozyme model in 1965 fortunately put an end to thoughts of major funding shifts that were being discussed. Let us hope some comparable event occurs this year.
