Incorrect sentence in a book?

Post by mnmn08 » Wed Jul 23, 2008 11:57 pm

Hello,

My first question on this respectable forum:

Is it correct part of a sentence, found in the recently published book about the history of genetics:
"...even before Watson and Crick had broken the genetic code..."
It contradcits the definition of "genetic code" found in online dictionary.

Respectfully,

you are correct. People sometimes misinterpret "genetic code"...
