Hypothesizing that the Cell Nucleus Contains the Material Basis of Heredity


Like Wilhelm Roux, Polish-German botanist Eduard Adolf Strasburger hypothesized that the cell nucleus contained the material basis of heredity. He developed the idea with evidence from microscopical observations in Neue Untersuchungen über den Befruchtungsvorgang bei den Phanerogamen als Gründlage für eine Theorie der Zeugung (Jena, 1884).
