CELEBRATING DNA DAY 

April 25, DNA Day, commemorates the date in 1953 when James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, and Rosalind Franklin introduced the structure of DNA in the journal Nature. The anniversary was echoed, if a bit chronologically contrived, half a century later with the publishing of polished human genome sequences.
