The original work was done by Martha McClintock, who is now at the U. of
Chicago.  She did the research while an undergraduate at an all-women's
college.  I believe it was published in either Science or Nature.  I don't
have the full citation, but as she has continued to work in this field
(with rats, not humans), you should be able to find a full bibliography
with out too much effort.
