Jean Paul Thiery started his lifetime dedication to Science as
a chemistry student in Strasbourg. He subsequently performed
his graduate studies in Giorgio Bernardi's laboratory, where he
was involved in projects aiming at elucidating the
physico-chemical properties of DNA. He also studied the effects of
restriction enzymes and their use as a tool in the elucidation of the
structure of the genome.
