Franklin, Rosalind

  1. Franklin, Rosalind ( - Ardell)
      "By 1952, much was known about DNA, including its exclusive role as genetic material - the sole substance capable of storing all the information needed to create a living being."

      "The now familiar double helical structure of DNA, and the base-pairing crucial to its hereditary function, were deciphered in 1953, and the individuals most commonly associated with this remarkable feat are James Watson and Francis Crick. Maurice Wilkins played a crucial role as well, and he shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine with Watson and Crick for the discovery. However, another important figure remains, without whom the discovery would not have been possible: the brilliant but short-lived Rosalind Franklin." 4-03

  2. Franklin, Rosalind (
      After completing her essential discoveries on DNA, "She turned her attention to viruses, publishing 17 papers in five years. Her group's findings laid the foundation for structural virology." 4-03

  3. Franklin, Rosalind (University of California San Diego)
      "There is probably no other woman scientist with as much controversy surrounding her life and work as Rosalind Franklin. Franklin was responsible for much of the research and discovery work that led to the understanding of the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA." 4-03
