Ed Lewis

Oh wow. I just heard about this too. Pharyngula has an excellent piece about this brilliant geneticist. I remember when I was taking a genetics lab with about nine other students and we would walk through the third floor of Kerckhoff past rows of bottled flies and the prof would tell us, “This is where Ed Lewis and Seymour Benzer work.” And I remember being very impressed that these guys were still doing what they loved when other people their age were sitting on the beach enjoying the sun.
