Caption: White blood cell. X-ray crystallography diffraction pattern for a white blood cell, obtained as part of research on biochemical structures. This image was produced by British physicist and molecular biologist Maurice Wilkins (1916-2004) while working at the MRC Biophysics Research Unit at King's College London, UK. It was here in the early 1950s that Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin, and other crystallographers obtained X-ray diffraction patterns for DNA that led to James Watson and Francis Crick's DNA double helix model. As well as DNA, the King's College researchers investigated other materials, cells, and biological tissues.
