"The discovery that the gene, localized to specific positions on the chromosome, was at once the unit of Mendelian heredity, the driving force for Darwinian evolution, and the control switch for development...can be traced directly to one person and to one institution:  Thomas Hunt Morgan (and his fly room) at Columbia University..."  Eric Kandel

The Fly Room tells the story of this remarkable environment through the eyes of the daughter of Morgan's student, Calvin Bridges.
