Watson and Crick reveal DNA discovery
Cambridge University scientists James Watson and Francis Crick announce that they've uncovered the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule, helping to unlock the genetic code of humans and other living things.

Deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule that carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses. DNA and RNA are nucleic acids; alongside proteins, lipids and complex carbohydrates, they are one of the four major types of macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life. Most DNA molecules consist of two biopolymer strands coiled around each other to form a double helix.
