On the 50th anniversary
of the discovery of the double helix
spare a thought for Rosalind Franklin
the chemist who produced the data
that supported the structure.
Franklin, who died before the Nobel prize
was awarded, never received credit for her contribution and was on the receiving end of Watson's sexism .
But with a new book
let's hope in this 50th anniversary year that Rosalind Franklin gets her contribution to this great discovery recognised.
