By: Ria Bajaria Watson and Crick discover chemical structure of DNA What Happened? On this day (Feb. 28th) in 1953 James D. Watson and Frances H.C. Crick announce that they have resolved the double helix structure, the molecule containing (human)genes. More Information Why is this important? We can now use this discovery to help us treat diseases and make predictions if a person is likely to get a certain disease. On the morning of Feb.28th 1953 Watson and Crick determine a spiral of two DNA strands (double helix structure) contain the human genes. They could now predict the genes of a family through several generations. Watson and Crick had solved a scientific mystery of how it was possible for genetic instructions to be held inside of organisms and passed from generations to generations Sources http://dictionary.reference.com/ http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/watson-and-crick-discover-chemical-structure-of-dna http://www.chemheritage.org/discover/online-resources/chemistry-in-history/themes/biomolecules/dna/watson-crick-wilkins-franklin.aspx Fun Facts Two other people who worked with Watson and Crick were,Maurice Wilkins, and Rosalind Franklin. http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/1962/ The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1962 was awarded to Francis Crick, James Watson, Maurice Wilkins.
