 A Visit With Dr. Francis Crick
Watson and Dr. Francis Crick's breakthrough, and the ensuing investigations into the nature of the genetic code and its transmission of information from generation to generation, have redefined the study of genetics and virtually created the science of molecular biology.
Dr. Francis Crick's verve for a project has often been interpreted as immodesty, but his candid questioning of his colleagues, of himself, and most importantly, of their scientific methods has been instrumental in radically changing our world.

 Francis Crick's controversial archive on first public display
Francis Crick is one of the outstanding British scientific figures of the 20th century and his discovery of the structure of DNA (with James Watson) is widely recognized as one of the defining and enabling moments in the history of human achievement.
Material from the controversial archive of Francis Crick goes on display for the first time as part of a new exhibition celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA at the Wellcome Trust.
The Crick display focuses on what Crick has termed "the classical period" of molecular biology, the thirteen-year period from 1953 when the structure of DNA was identified to 1966 when the genetic code was finally unravelled in its entirety.

Crick, Watson and Wilkins are awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine "for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material".
Crick proposes the 'sequence hypothesis' (that DNA sequence is a code for protein sequence), predicts the existence of 'adaptors' (transfer RNAs), and proposes the 'central dogma&; (that 'information' flows from DNA to protein, but not back again).
