Barbara McClintock

University of Missouri, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory 
"Barbara McClintock"

(1902 - 1992) I wish to acknowledge my indebtedness to Doctor L. W. SHARP and Doctor A. C. FRASER and to express my sincere appreciation for their thoughtful criticism and constant encouragement during the progress of this investigation.
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1983 was awarded to Barbara McClintock for her discovery of mobile genetic elements.
