Abstract

The Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) has been extensively used in the study of viruses and ribose nucleic acid (RNA) for several reasons. It was the first virus to be isolated in its crystalline form by W.M. Stanley in 1935. This led the way to intensive virus research. Since the isolation of TMV, its characterization and structure have been attacked from all biochemical disciplines, so that we now have a large amount of information regarding its structure.
