François Jacob (1920-2013)
The scientific media library of the Institut Pasteur is paying tribute to a towering Pasteurian figure, François Jacob, who passed away on April 19.
« Starting to work in André Lwoff's laboratory at the Pasteur Institute , I found myself in an unfamiliar universe of limitless imagination and endless criticism. The game was that of continually inventing a possible world, or a piece of a possible world, and then of comparing it with the real world » .
(In "The statue winthin", trad. by F. Philip, Ed. Hyman, 1988, p. 8)
