Avec l'accès à la chimie du gène et de son fonctionnement, la cellule bactérienne offrait la possibilité de donner un contenu chimique et physique aux vieux concepts biologiques d'hérédité, de variation et d'évolution. Dès 1943, le physicien Erwin Schrödinger arrivait à la conclusion suivante : ± L'élément essentiel d'un être vivant, la fibre chromosomique, présente la même solidité de structure qu'un cristal. Elle contient, écrit en langage chiffré, tout le devenir d'un organisme, de son développement et de son fonctionnement.? Interpréter les phénomènes de la vie par les propriétés des structures moléculaires qui caractérisent la cellule, telle devenait l'une des ambitions de la biologie. Nous savons que désormais le mécanisme de la reproduction et de l'hérédité est à la portée de notre chimie expérimentale
