TN officials have approved the demolition of two large buildings at the Biology Complex at Y-12. The Biology Complex once housed more people with doctorates than anywhere in the world, according to DOE. The men and women who worked there radically enhanced the world’s knowledge of biology through their research on the genetic effects of radiation. For example, scientists there discovered that in mammals, unlike in other organisms that had been the subject of extensive genetic studies, the Y chromosome was the determiner of male sex.
