Lewis, EB. 1995. Remembering Sturtevant. Genetics 141: 1227-1230. Alfred Sturtevant, a student of TH Morgan’s, is widely credited with developing the concept of using recombination to develop genetic maps. Lewis, a Nobel laureate Drosophila geneticist who knew Sturtevant, wrote this historical perspective on the man and his maps.
