Rosalind Franklin looks through a microscope - black & white

Rosalind Franklin (1920-58)

Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958) was the pioneering British crystallographer whose photo 51 revealed the double helix structure of DNA. “DNA Rosalind Franklin” by Frances M Lynch Performed by the electric voice theatre Franklin Effect Quartet: Frances M Lynch soprano, Penny Desbruslais soprano, David Sheppard counter-tenor, Julian Stocker tenor. Its a little simple round which was made for children and workshop groups to enjoy singing together while learning something about this great scientist.

Extraordinarily talented, she died tragically young, but had already carried out ground-breaking research that tackled our greatest modern challenge – viruses.

“Virus in molecular mode” by Frances M Lynch (composer) and Shelley James (artist) was created as part of the  electric voice theatre centenary celebrations Happy Birthday Rosalind Franklin!
