Rosalind Franklin

Have you ever thought of having someone else’s DNA. Because Rosalind Franklin Is in the structure of DNA





Early Life



Born in 1920 in London, England, Rosalind Franklin earned a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Cambridge University. She learned crystallography and X-ray diffraction. She displayed exceptional intelligence from early childhood, knowing from the age of 15 that she wanted to be a scientist. She received her education at several schools. Including North London Collegiate School, where she excelled in science, among other things.

Education



From early childhood, Franklin showed exceptional scholastic abilities. At age six, she joined her brother Roland at Norland Place School, a private day school in West London. At that time, she developed an early interest in cricket and hockey. With six distinctions, she passed her matriculation in 1938, winning a scholarship for university. At St Paul's she did really good in science, Latin,and sports. (Jimmy Wales, Larry Sanger) (2001).



Contribution To Science


Rosalind Franklin made a crucial contribution to the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA, but some would say she got a raw deal. Biographer Brenda Maddox called her the "Dark Lady of DNA," based on a once disparaging reference to Franklin by one of her coworkers. Unfortunately, this negative appellation undermined the positive impact of her discovery.

This scientists is important because she made the structure of DNA and made it easier for doctors. Yes DNA is pretty gross but at least you don't have to work with it.
