Caption: Thomas Hunt Morgan (1866-1945), US geneticist. Montage of images of the life and work of Morgan, whose work in genetics focused on the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and established many ideas in chromosome theory. It was Morgan who proved that the chromosome was the carrier of heredity, and that the chromosome consists of genes. He also discovered crossover (the exchange of genes between chromosomes), and helped produce the first chromosome map. In 1933 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
