    Waddington’s Legacy to Developmental and Theoretical Biology.Jonathan B. L. Bard - 2008 - Biological Theory 3 (3):188-197.
    Conrad Hal Waddington was a British developmental biologist who mainly worked in Cambridge and Edinburgh, but spent the late 1930s with Morgan in California learning about Drosophila. He was the first person to realize that development depended on the then unknown activities of genes, and he needed an appropriate model organism. His major experimental contributions were to show how mutation analysis could be used to investigate developmental mechanisms in Drosophila, and to explore how developmental mutation could drive evolution, his other (...)

    C.H. Waddington’s differences with the creators of the modern evolutionary synthesis: a tale of two genes.Jonathan B. L. Bard - 2017 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 39 (3):18.
    In 2011, Peterson suggested that the main reason why C.H. Waddington was essentially ignored by the framers of the modern evolutionary synthesis in the 1950s was because they were Cartesian reductionists and mathematical population geneticists while he was a Whiteheadian organicist and experimental geneticist who worked with Drosophila. This paper suggests a further reason that can only be seen now. The former defined genes and their alleles by their selectable phenotypes, essentially the Mendelian view, while Waddington defined a gene through (...)
