  • Double dealing Jul 21, 2007
    by Ron Townsend

    The most fascinating part of this story was the effort of Watson to keep in touch with
    the son of Linus Pauling, who was hot on the path to discover the DNA molecule. It
    was almost strange the way Watson and Crick used the x ray analysis of a female
    coworker to describe the DNA molecule and later be awarded the Nobel Prize while
    she, of course, could not be awarded the prize because she was dead. It's a story
    of hard work and some dirty dealing that ended up with the molecule of life being
    described. DNA profiling in crime detection and in the use of geneology work has
    proven wide spread for it's accuracy. People who were innocent and imprisoned became free and
    the ancestors of Thomas Jefferson were establised.
