The biography series, aimed at young adults, profiles important modern-era scientists. The volumes focus on the lives of those men and women who, in the 19th and 20th centuries, made the greatest contributions to scientific knowledge. Each book looks at a scientist - or group of scientists - whose work had a major impact on a particular field. In simple prose, free of technical jargon, each scientist's achievements are discussed, including the scientific principles underlying his or her work. The human drama of scientific work, conveying the excitement and frustration of research, as well as the exhilaration and rewards of discovery, are also depicted. This particular volume focuses on the work of James Watson and Francis Crick, the scientists whose greatest discovery is one of the most controversial of modern times. Winners of the 1962 Nobel Prize, they discovered the structure of the DNA molecule, the double helix that bears the genetic code of human beings and all other living species.
