Barbara McClintock genetic scientist

Barbara McClintock studied the hereditary characteristics of corn. She studied how characteristics are passed generation through generation and connected it to the changes in chromosomes. McClintock also proved how changes in the position of genetic elements of a chromosome affects whether or not some nearby chromosomes are active or inactive.
