This chapter focuses on the time the phage group was dissolved. James Watson left for Cambridge and the Cavendish Laboratory, where he was going to meet Francis Crick and begin the work that would lead to the elucidation of the double helix structure of DNA; Gunther Stent left for Paris with an Icelandic woman he had met at the Serum Institute to work with Andre Lwoff at the Pasteur Institute; and finally, Ole Maaloe departed to California for a year to deepen his insights into the physiology of bacteria with Cornelius van Niel at Hopkins Marine Station. Niels Jerne was left solely responsible for the work of the department. In his letters to Maaloe during the following months, he complained regularly that the obligatory international standardization work took too much of his time.

Keywords:   phage group, James Watson, Francis Crick, Gunther Stent, Andre Lwoff, Ole Maaloe, Cornelius van Niel, Niels Jerne
