Synopsis

Rosalind Franklin by Cath Senker

This book describes the life and character of Rosalind Franklin, from her childhood in London to her years as a pioneering woman scientist. It includes the story of her work in contributing to the discovery of the structure of DNA, as well as describing her work in other fields such as virus research and insights into the structure of coal. The science behind her investigations is explained through interesting diagrams, and quotes from Franklin and her contemporaries give an insight into this famous scientist's mind.

Reviews

Cath Senker presents Franklin's story in an honest and uncompromising way. Junior Education, March 2003 A superb series...These books would be excellent both for a library and for children and teachers to read as part of a science course. TES
