Tendon research. X-ray crystallography diffraction pattern obtained as part of research to determine the structure of molecules in tendon tissues. This image, from a sample of rat tail tendon stretched 10 per cent, was produced by British biophysicist Anthony North while a student at the MRC Biophysics Research Unit at King's College London, UK. It was here in the early 1950s that Maurice 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.
