In 1968, one of the authors, Syozo Osawa (S.O.), and his collaborators found that ribosomal protein composition is different in each bacterial species when analyzed with carboxymethyl-cellulose column chromatography. At that time, he was not aware of the now well-known work done by Zuckerkandl and Pauling (1965) on the molecular evolution of hemoglobin molecules, and the neutral theory of molecular evolution developed by Kimura (1968).
