Should this page be moved to "Sir Alec Jeffreys" in recognition of his knighthood? --RedSunset 19:44, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
Without looking it up, I understand that it can be, but it is usually not moved. I can not quote one where sir is in the name of the page. Usually, the notability of the person is shown by the text, and the introduction should contain key points like this. Snowman (talk) 19:52, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
Is this man a genius or what? Discovering DNA at age 34? Amazing. Why he hasn't or wasn't awarded the Nobel Prize is beyond me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:29, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
Generally, biologists do their best work in their 30s, and in mathematical disciplines it is younger, in their 20s. Snowman (talk) 15:46, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
The large number of wikilinks and dates in this section makes it rather messy-looking and a little tricky to take in. Would a list format be tidier and easier to appreciate? --RedSunset 14:40, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
I am pleased that you have raised that point. I would not go as far as to say that it is messy, but while I have been checking and adding to it, I thought that it would be easier to read in a list. It is probably ready for changing to a list now. Snowman (talk) 14:58, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Nice job Snowman, that's so much clearer now! --RedSunset 18:43, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
