I am a science writer, currently working on some research concerned with
Elie Wollman. He and Francois Jacob performed the 'interrupted mating'
experiments in 1957 which demonstrated the linearity of transfer of
genetic information and clarified the mechanism of conjugation.

For a scientist of such seminal influence, I find precious little on
him. Does anyone know where I might a source concerning his birth,
education, interests, etc?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Sincerely, Brian Hoyle
