Since the discovery of the structure of DNA in the middle of the last century, the study of the genetic code has undergone enormous technical and conceptual developments. The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics has led many of these developments. On the occasion of the institute’s 60th anniversary, we take a look at the key discoveries at the institute that shaped our understanding of the intricacies of the genetic code, its regulation, and its implications for human development, individuality, and disease.
