Thomas Hunt Morgan (1866–1945) was an American geneticist and embryologist who studied the development and genetics of the vinegar fly (Drosophila melanogaster). He began reapplying Mendel's early plant studies to this animal model system and was warded the 1933 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work.


  • 1908 - looking for an inexpensive animal that could be breed quickly and in limited space and Castle suggested the drosophila. Through Morgan’s studies of heredity he discovered the white-eyed mutation in the drosophila.
  • 1910 - at Columbia University T.H Morgan and his students work on the top floor of the Schermerhorn Hall and it became known as the fly room. Students of the Fly Room were A.H. Sturtevant, C.B Bridges and H.J. Muller.
