More of this about that

The scientists who contributed to the development of the atom bomb worked with and helped Luria and Delbrück.

Enrico Fermi helped Luria get established in the United States. Luria was James Watson’s Ph.D. advisor. (Watson and Francis Crick discovered the DNA structure of the genetic code.)

Wolfgang Pauli and Niels Bohr got Delbrück interested in biology. Delbrück became Lise Meitner’s assistant. (Otto Robert Frisch was Meitner’s nephew.)
