Hey fellows, How are you doing!! In this blog-post, I am writing about the important names of scientists chapter-wise as some students requested for this!!
Important scientists Names

The principle of inheritance and variation

  • Proposed the law of inheritance.
[2] Hugo de Vries, Correns and Von Tschermak {1900}

  • Rediscovered Mendel's results on the inheritance of characters
[3] Walter Sutton and Theodore Boveri

  • Noted the behavior of chromosomes was parallel to the behavior of genes and used chromosomes movement to explain Mendel's law.
  • Proposed the chromosomal theory of inheritance.
[4] Thomas Hunt Morgan

  • Given the experimental proof of the chromosomal theory of inheritance.
  • Discovered the linkage in Drosophila
[5] Alfred Sturtevant

  • Used the frequency of recombination between gene pairs on the same chromosomes and mapped their position on chromosomes. 
[6] Reginald C. Punnett {British Geneticist}

  • Develop the Punnett square.

Molecular Basis Of Inheritance

[1] Friedrich Meischer {1869}

  •  Discovered the DNA.

[2] Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin
  • Produce X-Ray diffraction data of DNA.
[3] James Watson and Francis Crick
  • Based on the data (X-Ray diffraction pattern) proposed the double helix model for the structure of DNA.
[4] Oswald Avery, Colin MacLeod, Maclyn McCarty {1933-1944}
  • Worked to determine the biochemical nature of transforming principle.
[5] Fredrick Griffith {1928}
  • Transforming principle [ S and R starin]
[6] Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase {1952}
  • Confirmed that the DNA is the genetic material. 

[7] Mathew Meselson and Franklin Stahl {1958}

  • Confirmed that DNA is semi-conservative.

[8] Francis Jacob and Jacque Monod 

  • Discovered the Lac-Operon
[9] Frederick Sanger 

  • Discovered the automated DNA sequencer
  • Discovered the automated amino-acid sequencer in protein
[10] Alec Jeffreys 

  • Discovered the technique of DNA fingerprinting.


[1] Miler [1953]

  • Represents the Miler's experiment.
[2] Oparine and Haldane 

  • proposed the first form of life could have come from pre-existing non-living organic molecules.
[3] Charles Darwin 

  • Traveled in H.M.S. Beagle for some yrs and gave the theory of Evolution.
[4] Alfred Wallace 

  • Traveled in the Malay Archipelago and gave the same conclusions as Charles Darwin.
[5] Lamarck 

  • Given the theory of use and disuse of organs.
[6] Thomas Malthus 

  • His work influence Charles Darwin.
[7] Hugo de Vries

  • Work on evening primrose and gave the word 'Saltation'.
[8] Hardy-Weinberg principle

  • This principle says that allele frequencies in a population are stable and constant from generation to generation.

Hey Fellows, how is it going?

  • Here in this blog-post basically I provide you the scientist's name of class 12th chapter-wise. At this time provide it for chapter 5,6 and 7 as the earlier chapters or we can say 1 to 4 have not any these types of names.

  • So comment down below and tell me how helpful it was for you and do notify me that should I provide all scientists names chapter-wise.

  • As per my thoughts, it will save yours lots of time and also you can do copy and paste in your own device from here so that you can read this easily.

  1. This blog post was immensely helpful. And saved lots of my energy and efforts... thank you.

    Please note:- Henking (1891) - chapter 5 . Henking discovered the X body and also named it as X body.
