Summary Note Little Rosalind was born in London to a Jewish family who valued education and public service. Having studied physics and chemistry at Cambridge University, Rosalind moved to Paris to perfect her life's work in X-ray crystallography. She then moved back to Kings College London, where she would work on finding the structure of DNA with Maurice Wilkins. After a fallout, Maurice used Rosalind's "photo 51" to create a DNA model with Francis Crick. Rosalind's contribution was not acknowledged until after her death. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the brilliant scientists life.
