C. H. Waddington

C. H. Waddington (Conrad Hal Waddington) was a British developmental biologist, paleontologist, geneticist, embryologist, and philosopher who is known for his work in systems biology and for coining the term 'epigenetics' to describe the interactions between genes and their environment that bring the phenotype into being. He also developed the concept of the 'epigenetic landscape', which is a metaphor for how gene regulation determines the development of cells.
