Evolutionary Biologists
i. During the years 1932, he demonstrated the first cytological map of Chromosome III in D. melanogaster.
ii. Based on the studies in 1930 by aligning the genes linearly based on the linkage map.
iii. He demonstrated that centromere was a main feature of the Chromosome.
iv. Sex Determination: In 1931 proposed that femaleness due to X factor is due to several other factors and not due to a single gene....
