The importance of place : a history of genetics in 1930s Britain.
This thesis develops the concept of 'settings' for genetics research in 1930s Britain and shows that settings were associated with stable 'types' of genetics, and what these types were and how they remained stable by comparing three characteristics of genetics at two locations in different settings.
