UCdofq4hHbT3ZDzgYUqsDd1A

The discovery of the structure of the DNA double helix was one of the most important of the 20th century. In this educational video, explore Watson and Crick’s quest to understand DNA’s structure, and Rosalind Franklin’s key insights via x-ray crystallography.

Rarely seen archival footage is combined with interviews with some of today’s leading scientists to bring this Nobel Prize–winning discovery and all of its scientific implications to life.

It’s sad how Rosalind Franklin didn’t live to see the results of her work and get the Nobel.

Watson and Crick met in Cambridge, and using known information about genetics from Gregor Mendel's studies and Rosalind Franklin's now famous Photo 51 to determine that DNA is the main structure in genetics, and that it is shaped like a double helix.

Rosalind Franklin’s betrayal by not recognizing her achievements and stealing her research . Both are crooks and not acknowledging that she was the pioneer and they took her credit by taking her Nobel prize. Shame, shame, shame.

Great video, but quite unfortunate that Watson is a known racist and sexist in the scientific community. Shameful that someone so immoral made such a discovery. One more reason why we need to be mindful of minority student interest in science. We can't be turning select people away from learning the scientific method. Everyone should feel that they have a chance to succeed in discovery.

It seems like Watson and Crick just looked at other people research, and put 2 and 2 together. People like Rosalind Franklin deserve more credit.
