Genetics, like all scientific disciplines, is a human endeavor. Thus, the lives of geneticists – their friendships, colleagues and associations – play an important role in the historical development of the science. This book summarizes the history of genetics by reviewing the lives of the prominent and influential researchers beginning with the earliest and simplest branches of genetics (studies of inheritance and mutation) and ending with the human genome project – the pinnacle of genetics research of the 20th century.
