Abstract

Wesley Kingston Whitten (1918–2010) was recognized as one of Australia's most innovative biological scientists. His studies were the precursor of the science of preimplantation embryology and the technology of assisted reproduction. He pioneered the study of mammalian pheromones and their receptor, the vomeronasal organ. He elucidated the genetic basis of hermaphroditism and mosaicism, and the timing and mechanism of X chromosome inactivation. Several of his recombinant mouse strains continue to provide models for a number of diseases.
