The Double Helix written by James D. Watson tells of a great discovery made in the
20th century, but I will discuss the relationship between Watson and Crick and the B form
photograph. This paper is for those who are interested in how the structure of DNA was
truly discovered. An important aspect of The Double Helix is the controversy surrounding
the B form photograph and how it was utilized to come to the discovery of the structure
of DNA. The key arguments regarding the controversy of the B form photograph is how it
was because of this photograph that the discovery of the structure of DNA was possible,
the B form photograph received little recognition in Watson and Crick’s publication of the
double helix and finally, the manner in which the photograph came into the hands of
Watson and Crick stirred up much controversy.
