A superb FGF Gordon Research Conference closes. One frequent question was the identity of the first paper on FGFs . Thankfully it is a paper published by a learned society, so it is available from the Company of Biologists as a PDF.

Well worth a read in my opinion. When I first got a copy from the library, I caught a bad cold from the dust on the volume. Now the PDF is available, this should no longer be a problem!
