9781567111330: James Watson & Francis Crick: Decoding the Secrets of DNA (Partners)

In the 1950s, two young scientists, one British and one American, unlocked the mystery of life's building block: DNA. It was a discovery that has been hailed as the greatest biological feat of the century.

The highly successful "Partners" concept (double biographies of successful pairs) is now available for older readers. Perfect for report writers, these biographies offer students an exciting and innovative way to explore the creative process and the value of teamwork. The dynamics of these famous partnerships illustrate the value of cooperation, compromise, and perseverance.

Grades 5 and up; 6 1/4 x 9 1/4; 112 pages; 10-15 photos; Sturdy library binding; Bibliography; Glossary; Chronology; Further Reading; Index

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10?More than just a biographical work, this book presents both researchers' lives in terms of their education, families, and important dates, and describes how other scientists around the world were paralleling or observing their work. Sherrow recounts how the men persevered and ultimately, as Crick later described it, "stumbled on gold..." The writing is complete and well documented, but borders at times on being dry. Still, this will be useful for reports on DNA and DNA-related technology. An interesting look at how great minds work.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
