Today’s Google Doodle pays homage to Rosalind Franklin, a British biophysicist and X-ray crystallographer who was the first to photograph and explore the DNA double helix structure. Her photograph – Photo 51 – was used and published by Maurice Wilkins, James Watson and Francis Crick without her approval. Wilkins, Watson and Crick, until most recently, were given credit for the findings and were awarded a Nobel Prize in the 1960′s. Today Rosalind Franklin is rightfully acknowledged as an integral part of the discovery of the DNA double helix structure. She was a strong woman scientist that many little girls with an interest in science can look up to. If interested, Rosalind Franklin and DNA was a book written by Rosalind’s close friend that helped to set the record straight.
