Their breakthrough drew on the pioneering work by their former colleague, Rosalind Franklin, who had produced X-ray diffraction images of DNA, but Franklin’s contribution to the discovery of the DNA double helix will go largely unrecognized during her lifetime.Deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule that carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses. DNA and RNA are nucleic acids; alongside proteins, lipids and complex carbohydrates, they are one of the four major types of macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life. Most DNA molecules consist of two biopolymer strands coiled around each other to form a double helix. wiki/DNA(1983) ‘M*A*S*H’ finale airs to record-smashing ratingsNearly 106 million viewers, or 77 percent of the American TV-watching public, tune in to the last episode of the beloved series ‘M*A*S*H.’ After 11 seasons, the television show about a US Army medical unit serving in the Korean War lasted longer than the war itself.The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean war.
