Happy Birthday!

Happy 93rd birthday to Rosalind Franklin, the woman who alongside Crick and Watson, helped to determine the double helical structure of DNA.

Sadly, Franklin, was not acknowledged with a Noble Prize like the others, as she died before their work was recognised, and was unable to be awarded the prize posthumously.

However, here at The Science Tree, Rosalind's work will never be forgotten. So Explorers when anyone mentions the words: DNA, double helix, Crick and Watson. Be sure to add one more equally important word: Franklin.

Happy Birthday Rosalind.
