Douglas Koshland is Professor of Genetics, Genomics and Development in Berkeley’s Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, his father’s former department. He is able as a scientist and Dan’s younger son to discuss what Dr. Koshland considered his greatest scientific contribution, his research on induced fit, a theory, now generally accepted, of enzyme-substrate interaction. As a board member of the Marian E. Koshland Science Museum in Washington D.C., Doug speaks about the museum’s mission, accomplishments, and problems. He also mentions his father’s last scientific projects, on bacteria as a fuel source.
