Walter Gilbert QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Biology will relate every human gene to the genes of other animals and bacteria, to this great chain of being.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
By asking a novel question that you don't know the answer to, you discover whether you can formulate a way of finding the answer, and you stretch your own mind, and very often you learn something new.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Early on, it's good to develop the ability to write. Learning to write is a useful exercise, even if what you're writing about is not that relevant.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Error is far more common than fraud which probably comprises 1 percent or a tenth of a percent of the literature.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Everyone wants a hand in the outcome, a piece of the knowledge.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
I have the same sense of the power and virtue of knowledge that some people get from a religious background.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
I suggested evolution started off with tiny genes that coded for pieces of proteins and that large pieces of DNA were assembled by adding introns, like glue, to tie the exons together.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
In 15 years we'll have all the sequence, a list of the genes everyone has in common and those that differ among people. We know only something like a tenth of 1 percent of the sequence at the moment.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
In a sense, the human genome program has the same theme. It is the ultimate answer. Nothing in the individual is more causal, more basic.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
It's easier to change what you do than people think it is. If you don't change, your field changes around you.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Science doesn't in the slightest depend on trust. It depends completely on the belief that you can demonstrate something for yourself.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Scientists tend to be skeptical, but the weakness of the community of science is that it tends to move into preformed establishment modes that say this is the only way of doing science, the only valid view.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The best project is one that asks a novel question.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The human's place in the universe will be set in the scheme of evolution, the product of our biological inheritance.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The idea that one can create a single subspecies that breeds true and is superhealthy and so on is an illusion.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The interaction of the variation in our genes is what's responsible for lots of our attributes and vigor.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The list of genes that will come out of the genome project will be the tool that turns our questions into global ones.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The really fascinating thing about research is the new science, but to get to it, you have to get past that first level.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
The virtues of science are skepticism and independence of thought.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
To construct something as complicated as our bodies, we turn on different genes in muscles, skin, and so on to structure them.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Today we try to identify a gene and then study its properties.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
We are embedded in a biological world and related to the organisms around us.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
We can learn about the pattern of evolution by looking at the structure of genes and comparing the structure of proteins.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
We haven't been able yet to determine in terms of genes what makes a human being a human and not another mammal.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
We know specific genes are turned on in specific cells, but we don't know to what extent this happens.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
Why do we do basic research? To learn about ourselves.
Quotation of Walter Gilbert
With everything I do, I am well advised to repeat the experiment I'm starting from.
