"At once a scientific exploration and a personal history, Maddox's biography is inviting and ultimately satisfying."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note 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.
