M4D1: The Double Helix: Double crossed?
Recall
the pivotal work of Rosalind Franklin, James Watson and Francis Crick.
It has been reported that Franklin independently discovered the double
helical nature of DNA, but was only mentioned in Watson’s and Crick’s published paper on the hypothesis of DNA structure.
View and read the references below. Based on these and your own
research, do you feel that Franklin was given appropriate recognition
for her contribution to the discovery of the double helical structure of
DNA?
