    This is really spooky. My student asked me earlier today where NIH was in the USA (we’re in the UK) and whether it was a big place: we looked on Google maps. Then Map that Campus pops up! I don’t know what the clue relates to though.

    This week the clue would apear to be more dificult to crack than the satellite photo. The hint is a reference to a famous experiment that led to a Nobel.

    Let me rephrase the clue.

    Okay Nirenberg & Matthaei ‘discovering’ codons polyuracil synthetic mRNA into an all phenylalanine polypeptide. Ashamed to say I didn’t know this was done at the NIH. Crick and Brenner defined the triplet code later. Topical, given the ribosome Nobel last week.
