Report on biological research program 48-A-1 at the Crocker Radiation Laboratory at Berkeley. The research program studied the metabolism of the radio-elements produced by nuclear fission and various fissionable elements including Plutonium. The report summarizes the data and research in three main areas: metabolic studies, deposition of Pu and other fissionable products in the skeleton, and plant and soil studies. Tracer experiments were conducted in the metabolic studies using small amounts of carrier-free radio-elements employed at a dosage level below that which is expected to cause radiation injury.
