Introduction to Genetics
Recall the pivotal work of Rosalind Franklin, James Watson and Francis Crick. It has been reported that Franklin independently discovered the double helical nature of DNA, but was only mentioned in Watsons and Cricks published paper on the hypothesis of DNA structure.
View and read the references below. Based on these and your own research, do you feel that Franklin was given appropriate recognition for her contribution to the discovery of the double helical structure of DNA?
