A scientific legend in his own time, James Watson was awarded the Nobel Prize for helping discover the structure of DNA. Tomorrow he will sell the medal for income at a Christie's auction.
Dr. James Watson can’t help but speak his mind. And this has gotten the co-discoverer of DNA’s double-helix in trouble in the past. He has been called, among other things, […]
The X-ray crystallographer contributed some crucial pieces of information to Watson and Crick’s search for the double helix. But because she likely had Asperger’s syndrome, she was almost impossible to collaborate with.
James Watson: Up until now, machines have made our lives a lot better. I don’t thing they’ve depersonalized us so far.
James Watson: If people had a longer life, human beings would progress more slowly.

Are we really only a moment away from "The Singularity," a technological epoch that will usher in a new era in human evolution?
75 years after Erwin Schrödinger's prescient description of something like DNA, we still don't know the "laws of life."
These photos of scientific heroes and accomplishments inspire awe and curiosity.
Scientists have identified an alternative DNA structure described as a "twisted knot" inside living human cells. They're calling it the i-motif.
The most influential contemporary scientists and their accomplishments.
Rosalind Franklin is most known for her role in first capturing the blueprint for life. Her efforts provided the evidence to deduce the double helix structure of DNA.
Neuroscientists at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have published the first set of data which they collected by examining thin slices of a mouse's brain to create a 3D diagram.
“Too much experience…may restrict creativity because you know so well how things should be done that you are unable to escape to come up with new ideas.”
A DIALOGUE BETWEEN JASON SILVA AND TECHNO-ECOLOGIC SCHOLAR RICHARD DOYLE Richard Doyle also goes by mobius, an indicator of just how important interconnections are to him – and how transformative, […]
