Others shared DNA discovery
IT was not just Drs Crick and Watson who received the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine in 1962 (Past Times, May 17).
Dr Maurice Wilkins of Kings College, London also shared in the prize - and many consider that Dr Rosalind Franklin who worked with Wilkins but sadly died before the award should be equally ranked with the three winners.
The award was not for the discovery of DNA per se but for the elucidation of its structure, and its function in the transfer of genetic information. Dr Peter B Baker Via email
