Félix d'Herelle and the origins of molecular biology by William C Summers ( )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A self-taught scientist determined to bring science out of the laboratory and into the practical arena, French-Canadian Felix d'Herelle (1873-1949) made history in two different fields of biology. Not only was he first to demonstrate the use and application of bacteria for biological control of insect pests, he also became a seminal figure in the history of molecular biology. This book is the first full biography of d'Herelle, a complex figure who emulated Louis Pasteur and influenced the course of twentieth-century biology, yet remained a controversial outsider to the scientific community
Reconceiving the gene Seymour Benzer's adventures in phage genetics by Frederic Lawrence Holmes ( )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A fascinating and detailed chronicle, "Reconceptualizing the Gene" relates how, between 1954 and 1961, the biologist Seymour Benzer mapped the fine structure of the rII region of the genome of the bacterial virus known as phage T4. Benzer's accomplishments and discoveries are widely recognized as a tipping point in mid-twentieth-century molecular biology when the nature of the gene was recast in molecular terms. More often than any other individual, he is considered to have led geneticists from the classical gene into the molecular age. Drawing on Benzer's remarkably complete record of his experiments, his correspondence, and published sources, Frederic Lawrence Holmes reconstructs how the former physicist initiated his work in phage biology, and how he accomplished his landmark investigation. The book follows Benzer's investigative pathway as his research unfolded and shifted, and as he adapted to opportunities or disappointments as they arose. The story of Benzer's creativity as a researcher is a fascinating story that also reveals intriguing aspects common to the scientific enterprise
