Ira Herskowitz, 56; Geneticist, Yeast Expert (1946-2003)

I’m not of the Herskowitz lineage (scientists count lineage like vampires: you descend from those what made you), but I know there’s a lot of people out there who are. For all of you people who have ever said “the awesome power of yeast genetics”, Herskowitz invented the phrase.
