Today (april 25th) is 50 th aniversary of the discovery of the Double helix structure of DNA by Watson and Crick. Watson and Crick receveice a nobel prize for their work but they in fact did not do any experimentation. They have taken work from another worker and published it under their name.

In my opinion, Watson and Crick work is overrated and Avery, McLeod and McCarty should be more recongnize (Discover that DNA was responsible for the transformation in Griffiths experiment).
