Summary Following their own brilliant careers in haeme protein research, the outstanding scientists Jonathan and Beatrice Wittenberg continue to provide inspiration to the research community in the study of oxygen-binding proteins. Their research has provided the intellectual stimulus to bring together scientists from all over the world with the common goal of developing fascinating new ideas and performing innovative experiments. This book is dedicated to Jonathana (TM)s and Beaa (TM)s lifetime careers. It further illuminates the facts and ideas which dot the paths they traced in Biochemistry and Phy
