Haldane's first paper in 1915 demonstrated genetic linkage in mammals.
Subsequent works established a unification of Mendelian genetics and Darwinian evolution by natural selection whilst laying the groundwork for modern evolutionary synthesis and thus helped to create population genetics. Clarke credited him as "perhaps the most brilliant science populariser of his generation".
He declared he would no longer wear socks, "Sixty years in socks is enough." He was keenly interested in inexpensive research.
He wrote to Julian Huxley about his observations on Vanellus malabaricus, the yellow-wattled lapwing.
He became engrossed in genetics and presented a paper on gene linkage in vertebrates in the summer of 1912.

His first technical paper, a 30-page long article on haemoglobin function, was published that same year, as a co-author alongside his father.My body has been used for both purposes during my lifetime and after my death, whether I continue to exist or not, I shall have no further use for it, and desire that it shall be used by others.Its refrigeration, if this is possible, should be a first charge on my estate. The Briggs–Haldane equation was of the same algebraic form; but their derivation is based on the quasi-steady state approximation, which is the concentration of intermediate complex (or complexes) does not change.His article on abiogenesis in 1929 introduced the "primordial soup theory", and it became the foundation to build physical models for the chemical origin of life.He correctly proposed that sickle-cell disease confers some immunity to malaria.I know that cancer often kills, But so do cars and sleeping pills; And it can hurt one till one sweats, So can bad teeth and unpaid debts.A spot of laughter, I am sure, Often accelerates one's cure; So let us patients do our bit To help the surgeons make us fit.Haldane was almost dismissed from Cambridge for the way he handled his meeting with her. Following their separation in 1942, the Haldanes divorced in 1945. Haldane, inspired by his father, would expose himself to danger to obtain data.To test the effects of acidification of the blood he drank dilute hydrochloric acid, enclosed himself in an airtight room containing 7% carbon dioxide, and found that it 'gives one a rather violent headache'.His education was interrupted by the First World War during which he fought in the British Army, being commissioned a temporary second lieutenant in the 3rd Battalion of the Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) on 15 August 1914.He was the Fullerian Professor of Physiology at the Royal Institution from 1930 to 1932 and in 1933 he became full Professor of Genetics at University College London, where he spent most of his academic career. So that they could marry, Charlotte divorced her husband, Jack Burghes, causing some controversy.
