A Life Story

NZ scientist Maurice Wilkins is the least recognised of the three discoverers of DNA; a fact which is finally being rectified by this year’s 50th anniversary celebrations. 2003 will also see the release of Wilkins’ long-awaited autobiography, on which he has been working for the last 8 years. The Dominion Post: “In tackling the question ‘what is life?’ his readers may at least gain some understanding of one remarkable person’s life.” For the NZEdge story on Wilkins see here.
