For much of her life she worked alone, brilliant but eccentric, with ideas that made little sense to her colleagues. Yet before DNA and the molecular revolution, Barbara McClintock saw into some of the deepest, most intricate secrets of genetic organization. Nearly forty years later, her insights would lead to a MacArthur Foundation grant, the Nobel Prize, and long overdue recognition. At her recent death at age ninety, she was widely acknowledged as one of the most significant figures in twentieth-century science. We commemorate her monumental legacy with a special edition of Evelyn Fox Keller's acclaimed biography, A Feeling for the Organism.
