Codebreakers: Makers of Modern Genetics

The Wellcome Library recently opened Codebreakers: Makers
of Modern Genetics
an online collection of primary source material documenting the history of
modern genetics and the discovery of the DNA double helix. Over one million
pages have been scanned, including the personal papers of James Watson and Francis
Crick as well as the records of many other individuals
and groups.

CharlotteDr. Charlotte Friend of Mount Sinai, who
advocated for the recognition of Rosalind
Franklin's role in the discovery of DNA.

By bringing a wide range of collections together in one
place, this online research center draws attention to the previous researchers
whose work was essential to Watson and Crick's discovery. In particular, the
Rosalind Franklin papers
document the work of a researcher who some have argued was unjustly denied her
rightful honors as a co-discoverer of the double helix. Among Franklin's
champions was Mount Sinai's Dr. Charlotte Friend,
herself a pioneering microbiologist, who corresponded actively with scholars
and journalists to advocate for the recognition of Franklin's contributions to
DNA research.
