Rick: Thanks for the tag. I can't find your site, clicking on your name brings me to a blank page.

Yukon Slim: My guess is that they simply weren't aware of it. The rapid dissemination of scientific information that we now take for granted wasn't quite as rapid back then. It's not as if they had Pubmed and could simply enter DNA as a search term and find all the titles published using that term. I suspect back then scientists relied on word of mouth, and the general consensus is that the Avery paper was completely ignored after publication.

Check out this paper as well; http://caliber.ucpress.net/doi/pdf/10.1525/hsps.2004.34.2.207?cookieSet=1

Glancing through the pdf of Hershey and Chase's research, I was surprised to see that they didn't cite Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty. These two sets of experiments are so closely connected in textbooks (and therefore in my mind) that it seems strange. Any idea on whether this is because Hershey-Chase didn't see a connection, or is it because papers were written differently then (introductions of older papers seem much shorter than they are now, for example)?

Hi John,

First of all let me just inform you that the previous comment is in Portuguese (Brazilian) and it's comment spam. It has nothing to do with your post. It's a tshirt website of some sort.

On the other hand, I'd like to let you know that I've just tagged you with the latest "8 random facts about me" blog meme.

Feel free to ignore this comment (and delete it) if you are not interested.

My 8 random facts are up at my site, go give them a look.

Cheers,
Rick

PS: I tagged you because I've been reading your blog since day one and it's been very interesting. :)
