Descripción del producto

Barbara McClintock’s most noted discovery, “jumping genes,” changed the world of modern genetics and her name is recognized worldwide. In 1983, at age eighty-one, she became the first woman ever to receive an unshared Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. Before then few people, including other scientists, understood the importance of McClintock’s research. For decades she worked on her own in the fields, growing crops of maize—Indian corn—and in her lab, studying the inner workings of generations of corn. With quiet brilliance, she found joy in her detailed experiments, seldom bothering to publish her findings, never seeking the spotlight. Against all odds, this unassuming scientist persisted, bringing focus, big ideas, and gentle humor to her work. Her startling discoveries applied not just to maize, but to all living organisms.

Even as a child, Barbara McClintock had no interest in dolls or tea parties. She loved playing sports and being out in the natural world noticing things others missed. In high school she was drawn to science and went on to earn a Ph.D. in botany from Cornell University, then began her research career, often scrambling for funds to support her work. In the end, McClintock’s groundbreaking discoveries earned her wide respect and numerous distinguished honors.

Read this fascinating portrait of a scientist who harnessed her dreams and her intellect to challenge the world's understanding of heredity. This title is the first in the new Spotlight Biographies ebook series for readers ages nine and up featuring well-researched, in-depth biographies about people who have made a difference.

Sad that Barbara was not close to her mother, but it seems she was allowed much freedom to follow her passion. A true role model for girls and boys who may see themselves as independents, individual thinkers and who can follow their passion. I so enjoyed this book and want to share it with family.

This well-written biography features an inspiring subject who changed the way people thought about genetics. As with all Edith Fine's other books, this author has done extensive research, brought out McClintock's personality, used vivid language, and now, entered this biography into the electronic medium.

Author Edith Fine marvelously takes us into the amazing world of a scientist who defied all odds in her tenacity and relentless pursuit of significant scientific discoveries in the field of genetics. Barbara McClintock, a pioneer in her field, overcame hurdles of prejudice for being a woman, proving that a brilliant intellect is genderless, thus easing the path for future women scientists. Ms. Fine's style of weaving narrative with scientific facts has once again underscored her great gift as a storyteller. It was a pleasure to read this book and learn more about the great scientist's work and life.

Ms. Fine easily makes a complex subject accessible to the lay person in this excellent young person's biography of Barbara McClintock. By focusing on the achievements of this remarkable scientist within a context of her upbringing, we are reminded as adult readers of our responsibility to allow our fledglings to soar. Is the book the most exhaustive recount of Ms. McClintock's accomplishments? Nope, nor do I suspect Ms. Fine meant it to be the be-all-end-all biography. It's just downright readable to the layperson, and therein lies the beauty of the book. This is a book for all of us, not just for young people. Any way to give it six stars?
