Two years later, he explained these findings to James Watson and Francis Crick, who were then able quickly to elucidate the double-helix structure of DNA. Not much luck... 1905-2002 Chernivtsi- Turning Point in His Life A city in Austria-Hungary In my opinion, the eighth decision would be: Travel ten thousand miles.
