Legends of Science
Jillella Venkateswarlu Jillella Venkateswarlu

Jillella Venkateswarlu obtained his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1951. His research contributions were in plant embryology and plant cytogenetics. He was the first to describe the cell lineages in embryology. He was also the pioneer in cytogenetics, the first to map the pachytene chromosomes of several crop plants like sorghum, pearl millet, solanums, tomatillo, mustards, brassicas and several fodder kinds of grass. His work helped to better understand the genome relationships and their potential for crop improvement. Dr Venkateswarlu received the Birbal Sahni Memorial Gold Medal and The Bashambar Nath Chopra Award. He was the elected President of the Botany section Indian Science Congress. Indian Botanical Society, and Indian Academy of Sciences, Founder Fellow of the Andhra Pradesh Academy of Sciences.
