DF Digital File, 1989-2008
The Digital File contains much of the materials produced by Fedoroff from the 1990s to the 2000s, including correspondence with friends and colleagues. The majority of the Digital Files series focuses on her transposable elements research and her involvement at Pennsylvania State University when she became the Verne M. Willaman Professor of Life Sciences and Director of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences. When Fedoroff transitioned to Pennsylvania State University from the Carnegie Institute of Washington many of the research grants she was working on transferred with her. The Digital File series consists of laboratory research notes and documentation recording the methods and procedures used in the experiments. The collection includes a group of Hypermaize cards. Hypermaize is a derivative of Apple’s Hypercard program used to store and analyze data gathered over generations of maize crosses. The Hypermaize stacks and images created using MacDraw require emulation to access. The Digital File series also documents the courses taught by Fedoroff and the administration of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences. Request files using the Digital ID number. A complete list of digital files in this collection can be found in Appendix A: File Directory Listings.
Arranged alphabetically by subject or type of material.
