Chapter 1 examines the establishment of Stanford Medical School’s Biochemistry Department. I detail how this “DNA Department” developed its own style of research management and collaboration involving the financial and material arrangements among faculty members. Stanford biochemists’ moral and political economies of sharing provide an important background with which we can examine the dynamics between experimental developments and research environments.

Keywords:   Arthur Kornberg, Department of Biochemistry at Stanford University, moral economy, communal structure of science
