From the Publisher:

In 1962, Maurice Wilkins, Francis Crick, and James Watson received the Nobel Prize, but it was Rosalind Franklin's data and photographs of DNA that led to their discovery.

Brenda Maddox tells a powerful story of a remarkably single-minded, forthright, and tempestuous young woman who, at the age of fifteen, decided she was going to be a scientist, but who was airbrushed out of the greatest scientific discovery of the twentieth century.

Annotation:
A biography of chemist and x-ray crystallographer Rosalind Franklin. Franklin is perhaps best known for her x-ray photographs of a hydrated form of DNA which were a vital contribution to the understanding the double-helix structure of DNA. Illustrated with b&w photographs.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"At once a scientific exploration and a personal history, Maddox's biography is inviting and ultimately satisfying." 08/15/2002
