The DNA Double Helix Discovery — HHMI BioInteractive Video 4.5
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 seems like Watson and Crick just looked at other people research, and put 2 and 2 together. People like Rosalind Franklin deserve more credit.

The video is great and all, but I just can't stand the narrator host woman. Too over-dramatic. Her tone was actually distracting...

Thank you HHMI for making such amazing, entertaining educational material!

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.
