Carl Rabl

Carl Rabl (2 May 1853, in Wels, Austria – 24 December 1917, in Leipzig, Germany [1]) was an Austrian anatomist. His most notable achievement was on the structural consistency of chromosomes during the cell cycle. In 1885 he published that chromosomes do not lose their identity, even though they are no longer visible through the microscope.
