haha; okay. I just hate being really pedantic but I fell in love with genetics in 8th grade so I will ramble..
And to use this as a tie in to the scientific method is pretty weak anyway since rarely is the accepted method of science "steal someone else's data and use it to scoop their research."
isn't this how Watson and Crick came up with DNA's structure - stealing her pictures? As well as Chargraff's ideas... I'm glad you also pointed out that you couldn't see her picture in the design (I couldn't either). I think I recall reading that you work with genetics as well so I figured you'd catch that. I honestly would think that was pretty otterific(referencing Franklin, who died young and didn't receive the Nobel..) and could see that working into the scientific method theme if there were other references to the milestones of DNA discovery...like the Hershey/Chase experiments, Griffith and Avery....you could even go as far back as to the time when they separated the study of chromosomes from embryology - and of course, the great Mendel. All of those moments required use of the scientific method. :\ This is a really difficult theme...
edit: after staring at it for a while though; I did see Dr. Franklin's design wayyyy in the background which I found unfortunate as I still wish she had received more recognition during her (short) lifetime so I always think of her photograph as something that should be very prominent.
