Abstract:

This report is a translation of an article in the Russian Language periodical Priroda - Biosynthesis of nucleic acids with the participation of proteins. Genetic transformation. Ionizing radiations and nucleic acids. Advanced methods of studying the cell. Research works of recent decades have established the very important role of the nucleic acids and their compounds with proteins nucleoproteides in a number of basic biological processes. The work in this direction is developing at exceptionally rapid rates and therefore an extremely timely event was the convoking of the First Conference on Nucleic Acids and Nucleoproteides, which had the aim of coordinating the research works carried out in various laboratories of the Soviet Union, of discussing their results, and of exchanging experience.
