Reasons for believing that the cumulative effects of even small doses of ionizing radiations are likely in the long run to prove detrimental to the well-being of the human race must be known to most geneticists, but people who were never taught even the elements of genetics and those who have forgotten nearly all they ever learnt can have only the haziest notions of the potential Cited by: 7.   ERWIN Schrödinger (–) was a distinguished physicist who won the Nobel prize in for his pioneering work on wave mechanics. Yet, to biologists his name is permanently connected with a little book, entitled What Is Life?, that was greatly influential in inspiring a number of pioneers of molecular biology (S chrodinger ).Among those who Cited by:   Auerbach was a pioneering geneticist, an expert on radiation, chemicals, and genetic mutations, and author of ninety-six scientific papers and a book, Genetics in the Atomic Age (). She was also an active supporter of nuclear disarmament and opponent of the system of apartheid.

CROW) This account is based mainly on two sources, to which the reader is referred for further information: a biographical memoir for the National Academy of Sciences (H orowitz ) and a recent book (B erg and S inger ).H orowitz presents a list of Beadle's many honors and an extensive reference list, which includes his Cited by: 5.   The second major difference between Science in the Atomic Age and the other books in my series is that it will be much longer. More science has to be covered in junior high school, so unlike my elementary books, this book is designed to be used every day. The third major difference is the frequency of experiments.

In Genetics in the Atomic Age (), Charlotte Auerbach (–) described basic genetic principles to explain why radiation-induced mutations could be harmful. In Silent Spring (), Rachel Carson (–) drew on genetics to warn about the possible mutagenic properties of DDT along with other concerns.
