Felix d’Herelle and the Origins of Molecular Biology
William C. Summers (au)
A self-taught scientist determined to bring science out of the lab. & into the practical arena, d’Herelle (1873-1949) made history in 2 different fields of biology. He was first to demonstrate the use & application of bacteria for biological control of insect pests, & also became a seminal figure in the history of molecular biology. d’Herelle was a complex figure who emulated Louis Pasteur & influenced the course of 20th-century biology, yet remained a controversial outsider to the scientific community. Summers tells the fascinating story of the scientist’s life & the work that took him around the globe. “This biography of a single brilliant scientist is also a fascinating chapter in the history of biology.” “Marvelous historical sensibility.” Illustrations
