ABSTRACT
Sturtevant, Alfred H. (1891-1970) was an American geneticist and the first to discover the procedure for gene mapping. This ability to determine the positions of genes on a chromosome made possible the Human Genome Project, an attempt to identify and map the entire set of human chromosomes.
