On April 25, 1953, the science journal Nature announced that James Watson and Francis Crick had
discovered the double helix structure of DNA, the molecule that is fundamental to life. But absent
from most accounts of their Nobel Prize-winning work is the contribution made by a
scientist—molecular biologist and crystallographer Rosalind Franklin—who would never know that
Watson and Crick had seen a key piece of her data without her permission and that it would lead
them to the double helix.
