Rosalind Franklin and DNA
Rosalind Franklin's research was central to the Nobel Prize?inning discovery of DNA's double-helix structure. Known only as the bossy, unfeminine "Rosy" in James Watson's The Double Helix, Franklin never received the credit she was due during her lifetime. In this classic work Anne Sayre sets the record straight.
