Francis And Watson's DNA Chapter Summary

421 Words 2 Pages
a) Francis crick- Discovered the structure of that DNA that it's shaped like a twisted ladder and understood the way it replicates.

b) Rosalind Franklin- She discovered the dimension of DNA strand and that the phosphate group was on the outside of the helical structure.

c) James Watson- Together with Francis they discovered the structure of DNA and that he also discovered that hydrogen bonds were the correct length and were straight.

2. All of the three scientist were interested on working on the DNA and so the were all fighting to be the one to make a model in which just two phosphate were linked together. Francis and Watson didn't believe that a woman could do such a thing just because she's a woman and not a man. They all wanted to be

Their first model: the positive ions weren't surrounded by water, and phosphate group were on the i nside.

Franklin didn't receive enough acknowledgment, she was also suppose to get the Nobel prize. She was supposed to get it because she was the one that got the picture of how the structure actually looks like.

4) In the book "winner take all" in chapter 9 Watson writes about the acknowledgment in their project including about Franklin because a helped them. The DNA X-ray image that she took is now the principal evidence. Franklin couldn't get the Nobel prize because the prize doesn't nominate people who have passed on. Her co- worker continued with her work on the molecular structure of viruses and she won the nobel prize.

5) We to understand that the can be a complementary swquence in the DNA by only with the base that are complementary bases. We also have to understand how our body work in order to discover cue's for the disease that a have or that exist. We have to be able to know how to treat our body in order for us to live long. The replication is also important because we all have to have equal chromosomes so that we cannot be disabled and so that mutation could be prevented, and so that scientist could have access
