We internet lovers ask on Daily basis ” What is today’s Googe Doodle’, we are so get used to see and learn about these new Google Doodle per day basis. I say it is a great initiative from google that remembers the Great Ones who were magnificent in their Contribution to humanity.
“Nettie Maria Stevens was an early American geneticist. She and Edmund Beecher Wilson were the first researchers to describe the chromosomal basis of sex, but they conducted their research independently of each other.”
“The Google Doodle is an artistic version of the Google logo. Google Doodles represent events like holidays, anniversaries, or current events. Some of the doodles were limited to Google’s country specific home pages while others appeared globally”
What are the genetics behind gender? This simple question drove the work of Nettie Stevens. Building on research by Edmund Beecher Wilson and Thomas Hunt Morgan at Bryn Mawr, Stevens discovered the connection between chromosomes and physicality. Her breakthrough evolved into the XY sex-determination system, now taught in classrooms around the world.
Stevens died of breast cancer 155 years ago, but her discovery lives on in today’s Doodle.
