Hello Margie!,

My name is Chuck and I am a Student in genetic engineering at Southern 
Illinois University- Edwardsville. I have some information about your 
question I hope it will help. Well here we go, I found this information at 
Rockefeller University (web address,
George Palade, Christian de Duve, Phillip Siekevitz fifty years ago. You 
see, that in the 1930's the electron microscope was discovered and world 
war two messed up a lot of research. By the late 1940's the researchers 
went back to their work. They also did a lot of work doing cellular micro 
anatomy on the mitochondria, golgi apparatus. I hope this helps.

Have a great semester!
