On Apr. 25, 1953, Francis Crick and James D. Watson published their revolutionary findings on DNA. Their theory, based on x-ray diffraction images, suggested a possible structure of DNA, composed in a double-helix of sugar-phosphate backbones. Their influential discovery warranted them the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962, despite controversy over the deserved winner of this prestigious award.
