Escriure la història de la biologia molecular catalana: l'ús de les entrevistes, els articles científics i les cartes

Francesc Xavier Calvó i Monreal


This paper deals with the early years of the so-called Catalan Structuralist
School of Molecular Biology led by Joan Antoni Subirana and Jaume Palau.
How this period does have been studied? The main secondary sources have been
the historiography of Molecular Biology in order to place the subject in an international
context and also the historiography of Spanish Molecular Biology. In order to
contextualize the research topics, reviews dating from the same years have been
consulted. These sources, together with their correspondence, the interviews and
the characters own written narrative provided the framework which allowed explaining
this story.
