Caption: Barbara McClintock (1902-1992), US cell geneticist. McClintock is most famous for her work in the 1940s and 1950s on the genetics of maize. She discovered the moving of genes in chromosomes, by observing patterns of kernel coloration. She named these genes transposable elements. In 1983 she received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for her work on mobile genetic elements. Photograph taken in 1941 during the Ninth Symposium on Quantitative Biology (Genes and Chromosome Structure, 18 June to 2 July) at the Carnegie Institution Department of Genetics (later Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory), New York, USA.
