Caption: Dr. John Sulston, the British biochemist, born on March 27th 1942. He was one of the first scientists to join Dr. Sydney Brenner in his in- depth study of the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans. Sulston and his colleagues have pain- stakingly traced the development, from the egg, of each of the 959 cells which make up the mature specimen. It was Sulston who first suggested decoding the genome, the genetic blueprint, of this simple multicellular animal, a project now being conducted in laboratories all over the world. In 1990 he came a step closer to this goal when he and colleague Alan Coulson published a map of the genes found in C. elegans.
