Having read James D. Watson's "The Double Helix," and being a chemist specializing in organic chemistry and quantum chemistry, I am naturally captivated by the DNA molecule, and its historic structural revelation. Crick, naturally, played a major role in that revelation.

Francis Crick Articles & Tips

Co-discoverer of the structure of DNA in 1953, Francis Crick was one of three recipients of the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine, along with James D. Watson and Maurice Wilkins. Although invaluable as an X-ray specialist in search of the structure, Rosalind Franklin died before the awarding of the prize, thus preventing her from also being a recipient. Francis Crick had a background in physics, thus enabling him to gain insights of a biophysics nature. Coupled with Watson, Crick was part of perhaps the most important genetics discovery made.
