Nettie Stevens’ 155th birthday - Google Doodle
Google Doodle is celebrating Nettie Stevens’ 155th birthday Anniversary by posting a beautiful Google Logo on its homepage.

Nettie Maria Stevens was an early American geneticist. She and Edmund Beecher Wilson were the first researchers to describe the chromosomal basis of sex, but both concluded their research independently.

What are the genetics behind gender?

This simple question drove the work of Nettie Stevens. Building on research by Edmund Beecher Wilson and Thomas Hunt Morgan at Bryn Mawr, Stevens discovered the connection between chromosomes and physicality. Her breakthrough evolved into the XY sex-determination system, now taught in classrooms around the world.

Stevens died of breast cancer 155 years ago, but her discovery lives on in today’s Doodle.
