COHEN were the first to transfer a gene from one species of living thing into another species and show that the gene could function in its new location, thus making genetic engineering practical. Boyer also cofounded one of the first businesses based on the new technology. Boyer, born in Derry, Pennsylvania, in 1936, was a football star in high school. He studied biology and chemistry at St.

Berg married Mildred Levy in 1947, and the couple has one son, John Alexander. Berg did his first major work in the late 1950s. It built on several earlier discoveries, beginning with GEORGE WELLS BEADLE and Edward Tatum’s finding in the early 1940s that genes determine characteristics by telling cells how to make proteins. Genes proved to be made of DNA, and FRANCIS CRICK, the codiscoverer of DNA’s structure, had suggested that the order in which small molecules called bases are arranged within the large DNA molecule specifies the order in which the cell connects other small molecules called amino acids to make a particular protein.
