About the author

Biography of McClintock, Barbara

The American geneticist Barbara McClintock was trained as a botanist, receiving a Ph.D. in botany from Cornell University (1927). McClintock discovered anomalies in pigmentation and other features of corn (Zea Mays) that led her to question the prevailing model of the chromosome as a linear arrangement of fixed genes. Her model of the chromosome involved a process of "transposition". In this process, the chromosome released genes and groups of genes from their original positions (this sub process is named "dislocation") and reinserted them into new positions.

Although her original research was published in the 1930's and 1940's, it was not until research in molecular biology confirmed her theories that she received wide professional recognition. McClintock was elected to the National Academy at the age of 42 and was elected president of the Genetics Society of America a year later. She received many honorary degrees and other awards, including the Lasker Award and a Nobel Prize. McClintock died after a brief illness at the Carnegie Institution's Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories, where she had lived and worked for 50 years.

Biography of Perrault, Charles

Charles Perrault was born in Paris on January 12, 1628. He was the son of an upper-class bur geo is family and attended the best schools, becoming a lawyer in 1651. After being a lawyer for some time, he was appointed chief clerk in the king's building, superintendent's office in 1664. While there, he induced Colbert to establish a fund called Liste de's Bienfaits Cu Roi, to give pensions to writers and savants not only in France but in Europe.

He took part in the creation of the Academy of Sciences as well as the restoration of the Academy of Painting. When the Academy of Inscriptions and Belles-Lettres was founded by Colbert in 1663, Perrault was made secretary for life. Having written but a few popular poems, he was elected to the French Academy in 1671, and on the day of his inauguration he invited the public to be admitted to the meeting, a privilege that has ever since been continued.

Perrault laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known include Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood) and La Barbe blue (Bluebeard). His stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (for example, Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film. He also wrote Parallles de's Anciens et de's Modernes (the Parallels between the Ancients and the Moderns), from 1688 to 1697, which compared the authors of antiquity unfavorably to more modern writers, and caused a debate that lasted for years. Charles Perrault died on May 16, 1703.
