Luria and Delbrück, 1943, Genetics
R. Lenski talk about the fluctuation test (Luria/Delbrück experiment), very interesting!
Here’s the first of my blog posts on “must-read” papers. I hope others will find these papers interesting and useful.
[I’ve cobbled this post together by borrowing from a couple of previous writings where I explained why the Luria and Delbrück’s experiment is my all-time favorite. One of these earlier pieces was a Q & A in Current Biology(2003); the other was an essay that appeared in Microbe (2011) and then in the book Microbes and Evolution: The World That Darwin Never Saw(2012). I’ve also tweaked the text and added some bits to make things flow.]
