Chapter 29 Summary

Delbruck at Cal Tech told Pauling about the double helix structure, even though Watson had asked him not to. Both Pauling and Delbruck were thrilled because of how important and elegant the structure was. More evidence for the structure continued to mount, including the identification of a form of cytosine (equal to the amount of guanine) in a kind of DNA previously thought to lack cytosine. Francis worked on the A form of DNA, and the two scientists drafted a paper on their discovery. Rosy and Maurice both prepared papers on their X-ray photography in support of the DNA structure.
