During her 1954 visit to the United States, Franklin visited many virus researchers who would subsequently collaborate with her on projects involving virus structures. Barry Commoner sent her samples of a protein he called B8, to compare with the x-ray diffraction studies of TMV protein. They subsequently published several articles together. In this letter she told Commoner about her latest results on B8, and the note she had prepared to publish in Nature, asking for his comments as quickly as possible.
