In need of an interactive, chronological account of genetic discoveries and the scientists who made them? The scrolling timeline on this module provides just that. Arranged in segments of time that begin in pre-1920's and end with post-2000, visitors can explore a range of videos, photographs, and personal accounts, as well as biographical information of scientists by clicking on their images. As visitors move their cursors over the images, they are prompted to click on pop-up windows for further information and additional interactive features. For instance, one image shows Linus Pauling?s proposed triple-stranded DNA. When visitors click on this image, they learn about the elementary mistake that Pauling made when proposing this structure. The timeline also incorporates notable world events that put the genetic discoveries into perspective. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
