The Discovery of Double Helix

The physical sciences interrelate with each other and may burrow some concept for example in Chemistry and Biology. There is some biological invention that was informed by the Chemistry knowledge in the two researchers disagreed on the mode of communications. The invention and discovery of DNA by Watson and Crick have no difference as from the above argument. This paper is an attempt of reflection of the double helix discovery and its contributions in the scientific inquiries. Biology as a discipline that studies animals and plant have on record the history of the discovery of the DNA double helix structure. The work is attributed to Watson and Crick whose work depended on the data gathered by Rosalind Franklin.
Franklin’s work paves the way as without her knowledge Watson and Crick gain access to her findings and the x-ray image of the DNA. It is the foundation of one of the most discoveries in science and the greatest injustice ever.
Narrator: In 1962, the three scientists Watson, Crick, and Wilkins were awarded Noble Prize for their ground bearing invention of DNA which is considered as one of the greatest achievement n histories and unlock the secrets of
The original thinker of the model that was used in the discovery process was Rosalind Frank. A chemist by profession she discovered the photo 51 that provided crucial information to derive the model of DNA. The photo 51 showed the diffraction pattern which could be used the basis of her discoveries. The famous image of the DNA model using x-ray techniques that did not require a sample to be crystal.DNA are big molecules that do not form crystal prefers the form of organized fibers. The diffraction pattern determined the helical nature of the double strand that is anti-parallel. She figured out two forms of DNA which made solving the whole structure possible. The backbone of A form is ant parallel B form which is antiparallel.nbsp.
