On Saturday, February 28th, 1953, Jim Watson went early to the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, England. He shuffled cardboard cutouts until he discovered the complementary pairing between the DNA bases. DNA Interactive is dedicated to that moment in history, and scientists who breathed life into the structure. The site features rare video interviews, detailed three-dimensional animations, and an interactive timeline. Start with the DNA Timeline and watch the site grow over the next several weeks.
