*Rosalind Elsie Franklin (25 July 1920 – 16 April 1958) was an English chemist and x-ray crystallographer whose work was central to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), RNA (ribonucleic acid), viruses, coal, and graphite. Although her work on coal and viruses was appreciated in her lifetime, her contributions to the discovery of the structure of DNA were largely recognized posthumously.
