The correct answer is option CA– Watson and Crick. The two scientists responsible for the discovery of the structure of DNA are James Watson and Francis Crick. The double helix structure was first described in 1953. James, Crick, and Wilkins were awarded a Noble Prize in Medicine in 1962 for this discovery. Maurice Wilkins also contributed to this discovery. However, there was someone else that contributed to the discovery of the double helix structure. In most cases, this person isn’t acknowledged.
Rosalind Franklin was not recognized for her contribution. She died before the Noble price was won. She died of ovarian cancer at the age of 37. This discovery is one of the most significant discoveries of mankind. The double helix structure of DNA shows the two linear strands of DNA that run opposite to each other and twisted together. These strands are held together by chemical bonds.
