Caption: Francis Crick's original sketch of the structure of DNA, made in 1953. Later that same year Crick and James Watson published the watershed paper ''Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids'' in the journal Nature. Rosalind Franklin's x-ray images of DNA were crucial to Watson and Crick finalizing the structure of the molecule. Watson, Crick and Maurice Wilkins (Franklin's colleague at King's College) won the Nobel Prize in 1962 for the discovery of DNA's structure. Unfortunately, Franklin had died of cancer by then, and was thus ineligible for the award.
