This is a good point, no one complains that Einstien got a Nobel even though he didn't perform the experiments that showed electron emmision from metals, people don't complain that Schrodinger and Dirac got prizes even though they didn't do the experiments that showed the wave nature of particles... There is something to be said for putting all the peices together as selfAdjoint has pointed out, I don't think we should be discrediting Watson and Crick.
