In the summer of 1905, on a small patch of land next to what is now the Carnegie Building at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a 31-year old scientist named George Shull began to grow maize, or corn, in a series of experiments that would change the face of modern agriculture. In 2010, CSHL scientists made two fundamental discoveries that continue the legacy at the Laboratory that began with Shull to improve the world’s food supply.
