Though completely up-to-date with the latest research advances, the sixth edition of james d watson’s classic book, molecular biology of the gene retains the distinctive character of earlier editions that has made it the most widely used book in molecular biology twenty-two concise chapters, co-authored by six highly respected biologists. In 1951 crick, a graduate student at cavendish laboratory in cambridge, began working informally with the american post-doctorate james watson crick had trained in physics and was engaged in x-ray studies to characterize biological molecules.
James d watson is a nobel prize-winning biophysicist and researcher credited with co-discovering the double-helix structure of dna born on april 6, 1928, in chicago, illinois, james d watson is. The evolution of molecular biology eduard kellenberger 1 (author photo) once james watson and francis crick solved the structure of dna on the implicit basis of such a code just as physicists had a strong influence on molecular biology in its early days, physics is again providing new insights and clues for biological research.
Dna, the language of evolution: francis crick & james watson dna may be the most famous molecule in the world today, but it came to the attention of scientists rather late in the history of biology gregor mendel found some of the underlying regularities of heredity almost a century before dna was discovered. James watson was a pioneer molecular biologist who is credited, along with francis crick and maurice wilkins, with discovering the double helix structure of the dna molecule the trio won the nobel prize in medicine in 1962 for their work early life james dewey watson was born in chicago, ill, on april 6, 1928.
