by Eric Martz, April 2002.

The following timeline is based upon the book Nature's Robots - A History of Proteins by Charles Tanford and Jacqueline Reynolds (Oxford University Press, 2001, 304 pages). Page references below refer to this fascinating and eminently readable account, which contains the original literature citations. Nature's Robots is highly recommended!
