Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses. Most DNA forms two strands that wrap around each other to form a double helix. James Watson and Francis Crick were awarded a Nobel Prize for their proposed design of the double helix in 1953, based on the photography of Rosalind Franklin and Raymond Gosling.
