Norton D. Zinder, Researcher in Molecular Biology, Dies at 83

Wed, Feb 8, 2012
After the early rivalry with Dr. Watson, Dr. Zinder became a close friend of his and a trustee of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a leading center of molecular biology directed by Dr. Watson. “Jim would get excitable, and Norton was the trustee who would calm things down,” said a colleague at Rockefeller University, Jesse H. Ausubel. “They were both prodigies who burst on the scene in the early ’40s as 20-year-olds, clever beyond their years, and for that reason they both had long careers.” With Dr. Watson, Dr. Zinder was deeply involved in initiating the human genome project. Many leading biologists opposed the project, fearing that their federal patron, the National Institutes of Health, would take money out of their research funds to finance it. Dr. Zinder and Dr. Watson persuaded them that the project should proceed. Dr. Watson became director of the institutes’ genome project, setting its strategy and goal of completion in 15 years at a cost of $3 billion. But after Dr. Watson’s resignation in 1992, Dr. Zinder became concerned that the agency was “dawdling” and that its leadership was more interested in ventures that would please Congress, like the genetics of disease, than in the long-term payoff from sequencing the human genome. With the side objective of galvanizing the institutes into more serious action, Dr. Zinder became one of the few establishment scientists to support Craig Venter, a pioneer in DNA sequencing who had started his own genome sequencing company, Celera, in competition. When Dr. Venter developed a better sequencing strategy and seemed likely to humiliate the institutes, Dr. Zinder, a member of Celera’s scientific board, tried to mediate a truce. Though his efforts were not entirely successful, the two sequencing teams agreed long enough to declare a joint victory in June 2000. Dr. Zinder’s influence rested on his being one of a handful of people who were trusted by both of the genome-sequencing camps. “He had trouble keeping his mouth shut, but in some ways that was disarming for people,” Mr. Ausubel said. Dr. Zinder’s wife of 54 years, Marilyn, died before him. In addition to his son Stephen, a microbiologist at Cornell, he is survived by another son, Michael, a lawyer, and five grandsons.
