Double Helix Book

The Double Helix was published February 26, 1968. Half a century after the publication, Roger Highfield from the Science Museum, London looks at why this book is still relevant today. Read about it in the Science Museum blog.

The CSHL Library and Archives contains a large trove of original materials germane to the events described in The Double Helix, including items from the James D. Watson, Francis Crick, Sydney Brenner, and many other collections. Please visit our Digital Archives.
