Theodor Boveri was born on the 12th October 1862 in Bamberg.
Theodor Boveri's scientific work was dedicated - to say it in his own words - to the investigation of those processes "durch die aus den elterlichen Zeugungsstoffen ein neues Individuum mit bestimmten Eigenschaften hervorgeht."(3) In this connexion he obtained numerous results and was furthermore capable of deducing universally valid theories from these results.
Boveri was the first to point out that the results of cytological and developmental biological studies are in accordance with Mendel's hereditary laws.
