Caption

Collagen structure. X-ray crystallography diffraction pattern obtained as part of research to determine the structure of the protein collagen, found in connective tissues. This sample is 25 fibres of rat tail collagen. This image was produced by British physicist Raymond Gosling (born 1926) while working at the MRC Biophysics Research Unit at King's College London, UK. It was here in the early 1950s that Gosling, Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin 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.
