WATSON, JAMES D. (b.1928). American molecular biologist and geneticist who, with Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for medicine and physiology for their discovery of DNA’s structure in 1953. Signed bobblehead. (“Jim Watson”). N.p., N.d. A bobblehead likeness of Watson signed by Watson on the base.
Watson and Crick’s investigation of DNA’s double helix configuration grew out of the work of Rosalind Franklin and other geneticists and is one of biology’s most significant discoveries. The pair first published their results in an article entitled “Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid,” in the April 25, 1953 issue of Nature.
