Google Doodle Honors Birthday Of Rosalind Franklin

British scientist Rosalind Franklin has been honoured with a Google doodle.
Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958) was a British biophysicist and X-ray crystallographer who made critical contributions to the understanding of the fine molecular structures of DNA, RNA, viruses, coal, and graphite.

Her DNA work achieved the most fame because DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) plays an essential role in cell metabolism and genetics, and the discovery of its structure helped her co-workers understand how genetic information is passed from parents to children.
