Read full description of the books La doppia elica:

Il 25 aprile 1953 una breve paginetta sulla rivista "Nature" firmata da James Watson e Francis Crick chiariva definitivamente la struttura a doppia elica del DNA, la sostanza chimica che funge da messaggero della trasmissione genetica. Quindici anni dopo, nel 1968, uno dei due autori di quell'articolo, insigniti nel 1962 del Nobel per la medicina, scandalizzò la comunità scientifica narrando in modo vivace e provocatorio i retroscena dell'avventura intellettuale che aveva portato alla clamorosa scoperta. Per la prima volta il mondo della ricerca appariva nella sua cruda realtà: pieno di luci e ombre, di simpatie e odi profondi, di rivalità e inganni. "La doppia elica" ripropone lo "scandaloso" testo originale.

Read information about the author

Ebook La doppia elica read Online! In 1928, James D. Watson was born in Chicago. Watson, who co-discovered the double helix structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) at age 25, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962, along with Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins. His bird-watching hobby prompted his interest in genetics. He earned his B.Sc. degree in zoology from the University of Chicago in 1947, and his Ph.D. from Indiana University in Bloomington in 1950. He worked with Wilkins and Francis Crick at Cavendish Laboratory in England in 1951-1953, when they discovered the structure of DNA. Watson became a member of the Harvard Biology Department in 1956, then a full professor in 1961. His book The Double Helix, which was published in 1968, became a bestseller. Watson was appointed director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island in 1968, and became its president in 1994. As director of the National Center for Human Genome Research at the NIH in 1989, Watson launched the worldwide campaign to map and sequence the human genome. Watson is an outspoken unbeliever who considers that human progress has been shackled by the idea of divine fate, and that human beings should do their utmost to improve the future. In a Youngstown State University speech, Watson said, "The biggest advantage to believing in God is you don't have to understand anything, no physics, no biology. I wanted to understand" (The Vindicator, Dec. 2, 2003).
