G. Pontecorvo, 1907-1999 (1603 words)
Pontecorvo expected to move on to an animal breeding post in Peru, but never made it, having become deeply influenced by H.J Muller, who was then working in the Institute of Animal Genetics in Edinburgh, en route from the USSR to the USA.
Pontecorvo's work on Drosophila and lice had raised questions in his mind on the integrity of genes and autonomy, or otherwise, of their action, especially in relationship to the minimal units of mutation and recombination.
A third feature that Pontecorvo could not have foreseen is the amenability of this fungus to molecular analysis, which owes much to its ease of transformation and the high frequency of homologous integration of transforming DNA, the latter possibly relating to the isogenicity of DNA from closely related strains.
