Collection: History of Modern Genetics

History of Modern Genetics

The papers of Guido Pontecorvo, Malcolm Ferguson-Smith, and James Harrison Renwick have been selected for inclusion in the Wellcome Digital Library pilot project "Modern Genetics and its Foundations". Over the next five years Wellcome intends to create a groundbreaking digital library, which will allow open access to a variety of online research materials, including books, archives, films, photographs and audio content. These three significant collections of influential Glasgow Geneticists will be digitised over the coming year by the University of Glasgow in its new digitisation suite.
