N�sslein-Volhard, Christane (1942-), a German geneticist, was the first German woman Nobel laureate in science. For discovering the genes that shape development in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, she shared the 1995 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine with American geneticists Edward B. Lewis and Eric Francis Wieschaus .
