The records (1971-1998) of Dr. Russell F. Doolittle's biochemistry laboratory at the University of California, San Diego include
notebooks related to the first determination of the complete sequence of amino acids in the human fibrinogen molecule, paper
files for the amino acid sequences contained in the protein sequence data bank called NEWAT, as well as other research, correspondence
and Protein Society files.
Dr. Russell F. Doolittle, professor of chemistry at the University of California, San Diego, headed 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.
