Caption: Watson and Crick, discoverers of DNA. Montage of images of the life and work of British biologist Francis Crick (1916-2004) and US biochemist James Watson (born 1928), discoverers of the structure of DNA. Some of their DNA illustrations are included, as well as portraits of them at the Cavendish Laboratory in 1953, with their model of part of a DNA molecule. Watson and Crick met at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, in 1951. Their work on DNA was performed with a knowledge of Chargaff's ratios of the bases in DNA and access to the X-ray crystallography of Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin at King's College London. Combining this knowledge led to the deduction that DNA exists as a double helix. Crick, Watson, and Wilkins were awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (a group photo from the ceremony is included in the montage). Franklin, having died in 1958, could not be a recipient.
