Kary Mullis - Astrological portrait of an eccentric scientist

Note: I thank Dr. Mullis for having kindly provided his consent to the publication of this portrait.


Kary Banks Mullis is a scientist who became famous for having revolutionized molecular biology by the introduction of a DNA amplification technique known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
Thanks to it, we can obtain significant quantities of nucleotides starting from extremely small samples of DNA, derived from the most disparate sources.

PCR is so important that the history of biology is divided into pre-PCR and post-PCR.

Dr. Mullis is also known in scientific circles for being an outsider, a kind of 'loose cannon'  very outspoken having been noted for his personal views on some important countercurrent issues, such as the origin of global warming or the correlation HIV-AIDS (it suggests unreliability).

Born in Lenoir (North Carolina) on 28/12/1944 at 17:58 (GMT), this is his birth chart:
