Building on the DNA Revolution

In its 11 April 2003 issue, Science presents a special collection of news, viewpoints, and other articles to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the signpost events of modern biology -- the publication of the structure of DNA -- and the new directions in molecular biology that the double-helix discovery has marked out in the subsequent half-century.
