Lines of Thought: From Darwin to DNA

source: Cambridge University    2016年7月28日
The idea that characteristics could be passed from one generation to another was crucial to Charles Darwin’s theory of how new forms of life develop.
In the 1950s the structure of DNA, the compound that encodes genetic information, was finally deciphered by Francis Crick, James Watson, Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins, all of whom were working in or trained in Cambridge.
Cambridge University Library is celebrating its 600th anniversary with an exhibition of priceless treasures communicating 4,000 years of human thought. To celebrate, we have made six films on the six distinct themes featured in Lines of Thought. https://exhibitions.lib.cam.ac.uk/lin...
