September 2, 2017, marks the 25th year after the passing of Dr. Barbara McClintock, geneticist and recipient of the 1983 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for her discovery of transposable elements in maize. This memoir focuses on the last years of her life—after the prize—and includes personal recollections of how she mentored young scientists and inspired the age of genetics, epigenetics, and genomics.
