Meiosis (Updated)

Barbara McClintock was an American scientist and cytogeneticist who developed a technique for visualizing chromosomes and used it to demonstrate many fundamental phenomena in the cell. She described the exchange of information during meiosis, produced the first genetic map and described the role of the telomere and centromere, regions of the chromosome that are important during cell division. In 1983, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
