ABSTRACT Jean Paul Thiery started his lifetime dedication to Science as a chemistry student in Strasbourg. He subsequently performed his graduate studies in Giorgio Bernardi's laboratory, where he was involved in projects aiming at elucidating the physico-chemical properties of DNA. He also studied the effects of restriction enzymes and their use as a tool in the elucidation of the structure of the genome.
