"Barbara McClintock was born in 1902, within a few years of the rediscovery of Mendel's Laws. Her life, discoveries, and insights span the history of genetic science in this century." "In the 1920s, she became a dominant figure in the group that flourished at Cornell University under R.A. Emerson and made remarkable technical conceptual advances in maize cytogenetics. These studies continued at the California Institute of Technology, in Freiburg, Germany, and at the University of Missouri. In 1942, she joined the staff of the Carnegie Institution of Washington at Cold Spring Harbor, New York, where she remains a Distinguished Service Member." "McClintock's unique ability to discern relationships between the behavior of chromosomes and the properties of the whole organism earned her early recognition. She was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1944 and to the presidency of the Genetics Society of America in 1945. Had she done no more, McClintock would have become a major figure in the history of genetics." "But at Cold Spring Harbor, she began the studies on the consequence of dicentric chromosome formation and breakage that led her to the discovery of genetic elements capable moving within the genome and controlling expression of other genes. Although McClintock was universally respected and admired, the first reaction to these findings was often uncomprehending or indifferent, even dismissive. In due course, however, the generality of mobile genetic elements and the concept of a dynamic genome were understood and widely accepted, culminating in the award to McClintock of an unshared Nobel prize in 1983."

The Barbara McClintock papers by Barbara McClintock( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Barbara McClintock (1902-1992) was an American geneticist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for her discovery of genetic transposition, or the ability of genes to change position on the chromosome. The American Philosophical Society is the repository for the Barbara McClintock Papers, which range from 1927 to 1991. The collection contains laboratory notes, correspondence, unpublished manuscripts, lecture notes, photographs, charts, illustrations, and audiovisual materials. As part of its Profiles in Science project, the National Library of Medicine has collaborated with the American Philosophical Society to digitize and make available over the World Wide Web a selection of the Barbara McClintock Papers for use by educators and researchers. This site provides access to the portions of the Barbara McClintock Papers of the American Philosophical Society that have been selected for digitization. This site also features correspondence from the Curt Stern Papers at the American Philosophical Society and the Charles Burnham Papers at the University of Minnesota Archives. Individuals interested in conducting research in the Barbara McClintock Papers are invited to contact the American Philosophical Society. This online Exhibit is designed to introduce you to the various phases of McClintock's scientific career and professional life. It is divided into sections that focus on McClintock's life and major scientific contributions
