American geneticist who pioneered the field of yeast molecular biology which led to the use of yeast as biological factories for the commercial production of vaccines and other pharmaceuticals. His work in classical genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology has yielded numerous discoveries in biology, including a method for genetically engineering salt and drought tolerant plants. His lab has pioneered a better understanding of gene regulation, mutation, and recombination.
Science Quotes by Gerald Ralph Fink (1 quote)
[Barbara McClintock's] burning curiosity, enthusiasm, and uncompromising honesty serve as a constant reminder of what drew us all to science in the first place
At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan
