Rosalind Franklin ou La véritable histoire de l'ADN by Gary Glassman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En 1962, James Watson, Francis Crick et Maurice Wilkins reçoivent le prix Nobel de médecine pour leur découverte de la structure de l'ADN. En 1968 Watson raconte cette aventure dans un livre qui deviendra un best-seller "La double hélice" et fait ainsi connaître au grand public une biologiste morte à 37 ans, Rosalind Franklin. Watson utilisera les remarquables clichés obtenus par diffraction de rayons X de Rosalind Franklin pour élaborer son modèle de l'ADN, mais celle-ci sera à peine mentionnée lors de la remise du prix Nobel. Née en 1920 à Londres, Rosalind Franklin devient une spécialiste de cristallographie après ses études à l'Université de Cambridge. En 1951, elle obtient un poste au King's College de Londres, où travaille Wilkins, pour créer une unité de diffraction de rayons X avec comme objectif d'élucider la structure de l'ADN. Parallèlement, Watson et Crick se passionnent également pour l'ADN au Laboratoire Cavendish de l'Université de Cambrige. Ils publient leur célèbre article dans la revue "Nature" en 1953. Une reconstitution minutieuse des événements qui se sont succédés pendant ces trois années éclaire le rôle de chacun des protagonistes et montre les difficultés que doit surmonter une femme dans un milieu essentiellement masculin. Même dans le cas idéal où elle est acceptée comme une égale, les habitudes sociales la privent de nombreux contacts avec ses pairs." (résumé jaquette)
