  • Structure Of Dna
    981 words
    In the autumn of 1951, James Watson (left) and Francis Crick (right) started work on unravelling the structure of DNA. It was known at the time that DNA was present in the nucleus of every living cell, and that it had something to do with heredity, but without a knowledge of its structure little more could be understood about how it actually worked. They approached the problem with the same methodology that had been pioneered by Linus Pauling, who after years of exhaustive study had earlier disc...

    Over 17 million people are infected with AIDS in just Botswana, Africa itself and over a few million people are infected with some sort of cancer. As of March, 2003 no one has found a curer or even a vaccine to control the havoc these disastourous diseases lay upon people. Is it even possible to accomplish such a feat?
