About Jacques Monod. Jacques Monod. From their own work and the work of others, he and Jacob came up with a model for how the levels of some proteins in a cell are controlled.
In their model, the manufacture of proteins, such as the ones encoded within the lac lactose operon, is prevented when a repressor, encoded by a regulatory gene, binds to its operator, a specific site on the DNA next to the genes encoding the proteins. It is now known that repressor bound to the operator physically blocks RNA polymerase from binding to the promoter, the site where transcription of the adjacent genes begins.
Study of the control of expression of genes in the lac operon provided the first example of a transcriptional regulation system. Monod is widely regarded as one of the founders of molecular biology.
Monod's interest in the lac operon originated from his doctoral dissertation, for which he studied the growth of bacteria in culture media containing two sugars. Books by Jacques Monod.

The kingdom above or the darkness below: it is for him to choose. Yet the universe exists; particular events must take place in it, the probability of which before the event was infinitesimal. At the present time we have no legitimate grounds for either asserting or denying that life got off to but a single start on earth, and that, as a consequence, before it appeared its chances of occurring were next to nil.
Destiny is written concurrently with the event, not prior to it The universe was not pregnant with life nor the biosphere with man. Our number came up in the Monte Carlo game. Is it surprising that, like the person who has just made a million at the casino, we should feel strange and a little unreal?

Jacques Monod was many things throughout his life: aspiring orchestra conductor, hero of the French Resistance, scourge of Soviet pseudo-science that wanted to dismantle Darwin , contact person for persecuted scientists on the other side of the Iron Curtain, and successful writer who postulated the hypothesis of the Earth being the only possible origin for life. But, above all, he was one of the founders of molecular biology and the discoverer of the mechanism for regulating gene expressio n, an achievement for which he won the Nobel Prize for Medicine. In , Jacques Lucien Monod 9 February — 31 May was about to embark on a scientific expedition to Greenland when one of his colleagues from the faculty of natural sciences at the Sorbonne, Boris Ephrussi, convinced him to accompany him to the California Institute of Technology Caltech in the USA to study genetics on a Rockefeller scholarship. That decision saved his life, as the ship on which he was to travel with the expedition sank and there were no survivors. Monod thus began to lead a double life: by day, he was a researcher working on his experiments, and by night, a leader of the Resistance.
