The Russell Doolittle Biochemistry Laboratory Records document the activities of a UCSD
science laboratory engaged in research on the structure of the human fibrinogen molecule.
The materials are arranged in three series: 1) NEWAT, 2) LABORATORY NOTEBOOKS and 3)
AMINO ACID SEQUENCER.
Dr. Russell F. Doolittle, professor of chemistry at the University of California, San
Diego, heads a campus science laboratory that conducts research in the evolutionary and
structural aspects of proteins. In 1979, Doolittle's laboratory successfully analyzed the
structure of the amino acid sequence for the human fibrinogen molecule.
