  • Comparing James Watson And Francis Crick

    1. James Watson and Francis Crick were credited for discovering the double helix structure of DNA molecule. James Watson is known to have received his degrees at the University of Chicago and his PHD at the University of India. He then met Francis Crick at the University of Cambridge where he later worked after receiving his PHD. Francis Crick during the World War II was some biophysics who held develop radar and magnetic mines then after the war he then began the structure of DNA research with James Watson at the University of Cambridge. These two great scientist who are still remembered till today for their great work which they could have only accomplished together. They began this research which they both committed to with determination because they knew that the answer was the key to life so. They began by using a model building approach to try and find out the structure of the DNA molecule. They needed how the DNA transmitted information from parents to daughter cells. They failed their first attempt but their second attempt was successful that they were celebrated for their hard work by a Nobel Price. From their success they then constructed the double helix strand model with all the nitrogenous bases…

  • The Double Helix: James Watson And Francis Crick

    James Watson and Francis Crick, constitutes one of the greatest breakthroughs in the history of science. The discovery has given rise to the molecular biology of today and generated new insights into genetic coding upon which today’s multi-billion dollar biotechnology industry is founded. It laid the groundwork for other scientific achievements, including modern forensics and the mapping of the human genome. All of this is thanks to Watson and Crick, and their groundbreaking discovery of “the…

    protective and extremely competitive in their research. The final winners of this race to discovery were know at the time to be James Watson and Francis Crick. While their methods of discovery may not have been clean cut, they were the first people to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Pieces that were taken from others to make a puzzle with their names written across the front. The final key to their discovery wasn’t discovered by them at all. In fact, the final key…

  • Crick's Theory Of Dna

    1) A. In 1947 Francis Crick began working with Max Perutz at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. He began working on a new sector of the Laboratory where X-ray crystallography was being used in order to study protein structure. Crick's thesis project at the university was on X-ray diffraction of proteins. Crick then met John Watson and together they solved the structure of DNA using available X-ray data at the time and model building. After discovering the double helix model, Crick and…

  • The Double Helix Summary

    Watson was born in Chicago in 1928 and graduated from the University of Chicago. He is an American biologist, geneticist and zoologist and is best known for his Nobel Prize winning discovery of the structure of DNA along with Francis Crick. He is also known for his work with the Human Genome Project and continues to be one of the most influential scientists in the past century. I chose to read this book because I had heard it had been around for quite some time and gave an inside look at how…

  • Rosalind Franklin And The Double Helix

    The race began in the spring of 1951 for Watson, yet he was not the only player in this game. Watson names Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin, Linus Pauling, Francis Crick, and himself as the primary contestants in the race, yet in 1962 only three made it to the finish: The Nobel Prize (Watson 4, Elkin 42). Through the long process of finding the structure of DNA, each of the scientists named contributed a great deal. The only recently acknowledged scientist Rosalind Franklin, a young woman…

  • Francis And Watson's DNA Chapter Summary

    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…
