Molecular structure of nucleic acids: A structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid.
In 1953 Francis Crick and James D Watson published a short paper in the journal Nature with a quiet title: "Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid.
They began their article with the modest statement: "We wish to suggest a structure for the salt of deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA).
DNA stands for the basic building blocks of life, deoxyribose nucleic acid, and as DNA is the basic building block of life, it also is key in the development of all products of biotechnology.
A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid," published in Nature in 1953, the two scientists described the double-helical form of the molecule, shaped like a twisted ladder, in which each rung is made up of four nucleotides: adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine (typically abbreviated as A, T, C, and G).
