- In London in the 1950s, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin were studying the structure of DNA using X-rays.
- Franklin directed beams of DNA and used photos to record how the molecule shattered the X-rays.
- From the patters she could work out how the groups of atoms in the DNA molecule were arranged.
- In Cambridge, James Watson and Francis Crick were trying to build a 3D molecular model of DNA using the data from a number of scientists.
- They used X-ray results from the London team including some of Franklins best X-ray images that Wilkins had shown them without Franklin's…
