“Legacy of Dr. Kazuo Moriwaki” (1930–2013) Mamm Genome (2014) 25:193–194 DOI 10.1007/s00335-014-9518-y Toshihiko Shiroishi Received: 27 March 2014 / Accepted: 27 March 2014 / Published online: 23 April 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York 2014 Dr. Moriwaki was born in 1930 as a son of Dr. Daigoro Moriwaki, who was a pioneer in the field of population genetics in Japan, and became the third Director of National Institute of Genetics (NIG). Dr. Moriwaki started his career in 1959 as a researcher of the NIG, Mishima, Japan. He devoted his whole life to the study of mamma- lian genetics. Before Dr. Moriwaki began his work, the NIG already had a rich legacy of phylogenetic studies of plants. Inspired by his forerunners in the NIG, Dr. Mori- waki started a systematic search for wild mouse variants in the mid-1970s. His initial projects included a quest for the origins of classical inbred strains of laboratory mice. Then, little was known of the genealogies of these strains, although research showed that the wild mouse population consisted of several subspecies. Dr. Moriwaki made excursions into various parts of Japan, China, and Russia, where he collected a variety of wild mice with the help of national and international researchers.
