ABSTRACT
Background information on American geneticist George Wells Beadle is presented. The author reviews how Beadle is best remembered for his Nobel Prize-winning collaboration with Edward Lawrie Tatum on the "one gene, one enzyme" hypothesis. Their work revealed that DNA encodes individual proteins, and demonstrated that mutations, or changes in DNA, lead to changes in proteins. Beadle and Tatum laid the foundation for the field of genetic engineering. Information on Beadle's birth and early life is presented.
