The Marshall W. Nirenberg papers by Marshall W Nirenberg( )
in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Marshall W. Nirenberg (1927-2010) was an American biochemist who shared the 1968 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his work on deciphering the genetic code. The National Library of Medicine is the repository for the Marshall W. Nirenberg Papers, which range from 1937 to 2003. The collection contains laboratory notebooks, scientific diaries, research reports, charts, illustrations, published articles, correspondence, unpublished manuscripts, speeches, news clippings, laboratory slides and films, and audiovisual materials. As part of its Profiles in Science project, the National Library of Medicine is digitizing and making available over the World Wide Web a selection of the Marshall W. Nirenberg Papers, for use by educators and researchers. This Web site provides access to the portions of the Marshall W. Nirenberg Papers that are now publicly available. Individuals interested in conducting research in the Marshall W. Nirenberg Papers are invited to contact the National Library of Medicine. This online exhibit is designed to introduce you to the various phases of Nirenberg's scientific career and professional life
The NK2 homeobox gene and early development of the central nervous system Marshall Nirenberg at University of Oklahoma ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program is a videotape of a lecture presented by Marshall W. Nirenberg at the University of Oklahoma, May 4, 1995. In this lecture Dr. Nirenberg discusses the early development of the nervous system and the strategy of making a nervous system. He uses slides of people and diagrams to demonstrate research methods, processes and results. Dr. Nirenberg and his lab used Drosophila fly larvae in a beta-galatosidase medium to discover the NK2 homeobox and its role in the development of the nervous system

The gene code ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The second in a two-part series in which genetist and science journalist Adam Rutherford looks in depth at DNA. In this part, Rutherford asks how decoding the 'book of life' (the human genome) helps us understand who we are. He explains what DNA is. A biologist, Hugh Young Rienhoff, from America used home-diagnostic kits to ascertain his daughter's unique and unknown genetic condition. Next, Rutherford goes back 50 years to the work of Crick and Watson, the discoverers of the double helix shape. A physicist interested in how the amino acids interacted, George Gamow, contacted Crick and Watson to further this work. Then, in the US, two young scientists, J. Heinrich Matthaei and Marshall Warren Nirenberg discovered a combination of acids which made a single protein; this became the 'Rosetta Stone' of DNA. Rutherford asks how our DNA effects variation in our hereditary such as hair colour. Professor Kay Davies then discusses Muscular Dystrophy which effects boys and leads to poor muscle tone, disability and limited life expectancy. This has led to accurate pre-natal diagnosis. However, being diagnosed with a genetic disease is not easy. Former war correspondent, Charles Sabine, discusses his diagnosis of Huntingdon's Disease which always leads to mental impairment and then death. All these disease are rare; they are known as mono-genic. Rutherford considers height which is poly-genic. The interactions between the genes is commonly known as 'Sanger-sequencing' after the Nobel prize winning researcher, Fred Sanger. Rutherford illustrates this using a pack of playing cards. By 2001, decoding the entire human genome was completed. Dr Ewan Birney talks to Rutherford about his work discovering how many genes we actually have. He provides evidence illustrating how diverse estimates were at the time; there are in fact around 24,000 in humans. Within the human genome it was discovered that 98% of our DNA could be 'junk'. Professor Peter Donnelly, director, of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Centre, describes how we are more similar than different. In a project that studied both sick and well people, seven common disease such as coronary heart disease and diabetes are shown to be genetic in nature. This does not take into account the environment such as exercise and diet. Dr Claire Howarth talks about twins and her studies in various traits such as height. Many traits are highly hereditable, but not in evidence in the mapped genome, known as 'missing hereditability'. Current thought is that some of this data will be in the 'junk' DNA. Professor Mark McCarthy from the University of Oxford uses new technology to look at diabetes sufferers and see what further variants can be discovered. Ewan Birney then talks about the project ENCODE; to form an encyclopaedia of DNA. He describes the choreography of the molecules which form a much more complex relationship. The dark matter of DNA looks to be more important, indeed the shape itself seems signifcant

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
(Producer) Dr. Ron McKay, chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, National Institute of Neurological Disorders & Stroke, and Dr. Marshall Nirenberg, 1968 Nobel Prize winner in physiology/medicine, discuss their work. Dr. Nirenberg provides a brief biographical sketch of his professional career and the chronology of his research. From Dr. Nirenberg, Dr. McKay elicits information about the idea of a code for genetics, and Nirenberg's motivation for understanding gene regulation at the molecular level. As they discuss the future of biology, Dr. McKay discusses his stem cell research. McKay notes that he is attempting to build neurons with active synapses between them in order to replace damaged synapses in the brain. Stem cell research has profound implications for Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases. Taped at the National Institutes of Health
