Study Reveals the Hidden Contributions of Women to Theoretical Population Genetics

From DNA pioneer Rosalind Franklin to the NASA mathematicians in the film “Hidden Figures,” the historical contributions of women to science are increasingly coming to light. And a new study shows that it’s possible to reveal women’s once-hidden scientific work by analyzing decades-old research papers in the field of theoretical population biology. The implications of the study stretch far beyond that particular field of science, and the historical bias shown by the research likely continues to impact the representation of women in the discipline today.
