TITLE: DNA 70: A Non(un,in)comprehensive ReviewIn 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick described the double-helix structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Also, they embraced the idea that genes contained a code that expresses information. That changed our view of life irreversibly. This presentation traces how these ideas entered biological thinking, highlights the key DNA-related and DNA-based technologies as well as the latest developments in the field and provides a look into the future of nucleic acids entering our life.
