Watson Crick Franklin and Wilkins

James Watson, Francis Crick, Rosalind Franklin, and Maurice Wilkins are credited with discovering the structure of DNA in 1953. Watson, Crick, and Franklin shared the 1962 Nobel Price in Medicine; however, Franklin had passed away so Wilkins co-accepted the award for Franklin.

Who to find d-statistic for durbin-Watson test in the gretl program?

User Avatar
run each regressors as dependent variable and leave constant as independent variable. in the next window, click down Tests and choose Durbin Watson. This should give you the DW coefficient and its corresponding pvalue. reject null if less than significance level, accept if more than.

Is there anybody from the Titanic still living today?

The last survivor of the Titanic disaster, Miss Elizabeth Gladys 'Millvina' Dean (born 12 February 1912), died on 31 May, 2009. This date was exactly 98 years after the Titanic was first launched. At the time of the sinking, she was a two-month old baby and the youngest passenger onboard. The second-last survivor died some time during the week of November 4th, 2007. She lived in Glendale, Arizona.

How did James Watson help in creating DNA?

User Avatar
James Watson is best known as one of the co-discoverers of the structure of DNA. Luria and Max Delbrück were among the leaders of the new "Phage Group", an important movement of geneticists towards microbial genetics. The Phage Group was the intellectual medium where Watson became a working scientist. The members of the Phage Group sensed that they were on the path to discovering the physical nature of the gene. Watson, under the influence of the Phage Group, was aware of the Avery-Mac Leod-Mc Carty experiment, which suggested that DNA was the genetic molecule. The experiments, which Watson had learned of during the previous summer's Cold Spring Harbor phage conference, included the use of radioactive phosphate as a tracer to determine which molecular components of phage particles actually infect the target bacteria during viral infection. The intention was to determine whether protein or DNA was the genetic material, but upon consultation with Max Delbrück, they determined that their results were inconclusive and could not specifically identify the newly labeled molecules as DNA. Watson never developed a constructive interaction with Kalckar, but he did accompany Kalckar to a meeting in Italy where Watson saw Maurice Wilkins talk about his X-ray diffraction data for DNA. Watson was now certain that DNA had a definite molecular structure that could be elucidated.

Who are Watson and Crick?

James Watson and Francis Crick are credited with being the first to discover the di-basic double helix structure of (B form) DNA (published in Nature in 1953) at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University. Important in their discovery were unpublished X-ray diffraction images of DNA created by Rosalind Franklin at Kings College, London shown to them by her colleague Maurice Wilkins. They won the Nobel prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1962 jointly with Maurice Wilkins (sadly, Rosalind Franklin had died of cancer in 1958 and thus was not eligible for the prize). James Watson is still working and Francis Crick died in 2004.

Who discovered DNA in 1953?

User Avatar
The discovery of deoxyribonucleic acid, otherwise known as DNA, was made by Frederick Miescher, but the structure was discovered by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. Rosalind Franklin produced vital images of DNA through x-ray crystallography with which Watson and Crick were able to deduce the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick acquired Franklin's data (without her permission) and used it to propose a structure for DNA, which is now known to be correct (B form DNA). Some other data, other than Franklin's, was also taken into account. As a result, Watson and Crick are largely recognized as discovering the structure of DNA for the first time, but it was really Watson, Crick and Franklin (among other, less influential, work by other scientists).

How did Watson and cricks model explain the basis for chargaffs rules?

User Avatar
Watson and Cricks model, the double helix, showed that the base pairs bind together in the centre of the DNA molecule. Therefore because the bases are found in pairs, there must be equal amounts of each. This explained Chargaff's rules - the number of guanine is equal to the number of cytosine and that the number of thymine is equal to the number of adenine - because they are found as pairs.

User Avatar
The discovery of the structure of DNA was a culmative effort. After the discovery that the genes were paired, Watson and Crick suggested the first accurate model of DNA structure in the journal of Nature.

Was Francis Ouimet ever married?

User Avatar
I have found on other sites and blogs information concerning Ouimet. It stated that his wife was named Stella Sullivan and that they married in September of 1918. They had two children, Jane Salvi and Barbara McLean. Unfortunately, the newspaper articles sited as the source for that information no longer exist on the Internet. There is a site called www.ouimet.org but there is no info in the biography about a wife or children.
