Renwick, James Harrison (1926-1994 : geneticist : University of Glasgow, Scotland) (person)

Renwick made a fundamental contribution to modern human genetics, in particular to the development of human gene mapping that paved the way for the Human Genome Project. For a period of some 15 years up to the early 1970s, he pioneered the use of genetic markers to map disease genes on human chromosomes, seeing this field develop from its infancy to a major international scientific endeavour. Working initially at the Galton Laboratory, University College London, with Professor Lionel Sharples Pe...

Puck, Theodore T. (Theodore Thomas), 1916-2005 (person)

Genetics researcher who devised techniques for growing human cells in the laboratory and who helped determine the number of chromosomes in a gene. He was primarily known for his landmark studies in the 1950s in which he created the proper conditions in which human cells could grow and propagate in a petri dish. His incubating technique, called somatic cell genetics, is widely used and has been a considerable boon to biomedical research. From the guide to the Theodore Puck papers, 192...

University of Glasgow (1451- : Glasgow, Scotland) (corporateBody)

These are Economic History lecture notes, possibly a lecturer's own notes. There are 6 notebooks within a slipcase. On the slipcase is written in pencil "Dr James Cunnison? Alec Macfie?" The identification of the author of these notes is not certain. There is one letter within volume 6 addressed to Dr Cunnison, but without a comparison of handwriting it has not possible to assign these notes to Dr Cunnison. References within the notes would indicate that they were written after 1924. ...
