Seven Scientists Who Still Haven’t Gotten Their Due
Rosalind Franklin is best known for her work on the X-ray diffraction images of DNA while at King’s College, London, which led to the discovery of the DNA double helix. According to Francis Crick, her data and research were key in determining the structure.
Unfortunately, she didn’t get the credit she was due for this discovery. Franklin’s images of X-ray diffraction which proved the double helix structure of DNA, were shown to Watson (the co-discoverer of DNA with Francis Crick) without her permission and she never got the recognition she deserved.
