"The 50th anniversary of the discovery of DNA's double helix structure is being observed this year.

Perhaps heightening the celebration is the fact that James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, who shared a Nobel Prize for this scientific revolution, are around for the occasion. But the birthday party has a dark side and a tragic absentee, as this week's Nova documentary explains. The missing person is Rosalind Franklin, who, despite her extraordinary accomplishments, was kept an outsider in the men's world of science. She is the unsung heroine of DNA, just as she has been for a half-century."

"Fifty years later, Watson anticipates the one question that critics always ask: Why didn't he give Rosalind Franklin more credit for her role in the discovery?

"And the answer, though we saw a lot of her -- you know, when she was dying she went and stayed with the Cricks -- the only answer I can give -- and it sounds sort of gratuitous, but -- was, she sort of flubbed it, and we didn't want to say, 'Rosalind, why didn't you find the answer?'""

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
