BOX 1-8 Correspondence, 1979-2007
The Correspondence series contains Fedoroff’s correspondence with businesses, organizations, and colleagues interested in her jumping gene research on corn and plant DNA. The majority of the correspondence relates to Fedoroff’s research grant proposals and patent applications from discoveries made during her research. The grant proposals document Fedoroff’s planning of her research which included topics such as the molecular biology of the suppressor-mutator controlling elements in corn, and the molecular studies on maize controlling elements. Digital content is included in the grant files and some of the grant proposals also overlap with material in the Digital File series.
Arranged alphabetically by subject or type of material. The grant proposal materials are arranged chronologically based on the date given on the proposal and those that span multiple years are based on the date stated on the renewing documents.

BOX 8-38 Notes and Notebooks, 1942-2004
The Notes and Notebooks series constitutes a significant portion of the collection and contains volumes written exclusively by Fedoroff, or in collaboration with others such as laboratory notebooks written by Fedoroff’s students, postdoctoral researchers, or technicians. The series includes copies of Barbara McClintock’s notes dating back to early 1940s, and include McClintock’s research on maize chromosomes and transposition. The Notes and Notebooks series includes volumes detailing Fedoroff’s discovery of how to sequence the nucleotides of Xenopus laevis. The Notes and Notebook series primarily focuses on Fedoroff’s research in transposable elements in plants in order to make them resistant to drought, pesticides, and hardier in adverse climates. The Notes and Notebooks series complements other series in the collection, especially the Cross Cards series, Negatives and Slides series, Writings series, and the Digital File series.
Arranged alphabetically by subject. The conference and meetings notes are arranged chronologically by the date of the event.
