1961 James Laboratory Expands

By the 1950s CSHL scientists had begun studying the effects of irradiation and x-ray induced mutations in Drosophila and bacteria. James Laboratory became the site of studies, funded by the Atomic Energy Commission, on the effects of x-ray and gamma ray induced mutations. In 1960, a collaborative effort was initiated between microbial geneticists and physiologists in the James Laboratory which by then had become filled to capacity. To provide ample space for this year-round effort, plans were made to enlarge the James Laboratory building by adding a second floor.
