The Problem of Evolving a Genetic Code
Woese, Carl R.
Bioscience, 20, 8, 471-485, 70 Apr
Proposes models for the evolution of the genetic code and translation mechanisms. Suggests that the translation process is so complex and precise that it must have evolved in many stages, and that the evolution of the code was influenced by the constraints imposed by the evolving translation mechanism.
