Eric H. Davidson (1937–2015)


Eric Harris Davidson spearheaded many of the advances that led to our current understanding of how organisms are made from genomes. He helped to show how the coordinated expression of a whole suite of genes determines what progenitor cells specialize into during development. He also helped to pioneer the idea of gene regulatory networks — systems of interacting genes made up of multiple feedback loops, or subcircuits, each performing a specific job in the regulation of gene activity in the cell.
