On 25th April 1953 Francis Crick and James Watson discovered the structure of DNA!
The guys realised the double helix shape of DNA…
Discovering this structure has made countless scientific benefits to humans so it’s a great birthday to celebrate.
It meant that we could code the human genome – which basically means we understand the human body a lot better. This helps when we’re trying to make people better.
So a big happy birthday to the DNA Double Helix!
