Selected Papers in Molecular Biology by Jacques Monod describes the career of a scientist embarking on an uninterrupted journey of great discoveries leading to new concepts and perspectives. This book contains papers written in French or English by Monod and his collaborators. Jacques Monod has dominated a scientific field with his insight and vision. He has seen the direction that future research work will lead to, and so, reaches his goal. Monod is a brilliant scientist and the founder of a renowned school. With a talent to judge the potential of students and young scientists, as well as the ability to evaluate the various aspects of their personalities, Monod has successfully provided his students the projects and challenges that cater most to their interests and gifts. The projects he considers for his students are both productive and solvable challenges. Jacques Monod is generous, and loves both his students and collaborators. This book will be of interest to historians, biographers, academe, and to the general scientific community.
