Description

A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA

In 1953, Francis Crick and James Watson revolutionised biochemistry. The discovery of the double helix was a major turning point, not only in the scientific arena, but also in understanding the very basis of life. Answers to questions about how information is passed from one generation to the next, the hierarchy of kinship and the link between genetics and evolution were finally within reach.
But behind the glory lies a story of rivalry, driving ambition and controversy. James Watson, 24 at the time, vividly recounts the birth of a new idea, the struggles, doubts, dilemmas, the tension-filled fight to the finish line ahead of his opponents – and the final triumph.
